The 2020-21 Season

In light of restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Opera Colorado has postponed all 2020-21 mainstage productions. While this was a difficult decision, we are delighted to have a plan in place which allows Opera Colorado to produce all of our postponed productions during our 2021-22 and 2022-23 Seasons. Find details regarding our mainstage productions on our Upcoming Season page.



Opera Colorado Amplified is an innovative new series featuring both in-person and digital performances, designed to expand our reach and raise voices within our Opera Colorado community.

During these challenging times, music lifts us up and helps us to better understand the world around us. We are excited to work with world-class artists and bring unique, digital programs to Colorado and beyond. In partnership with Rocky Mountain Public Media, we are delighted to offer two new, digital concerts completely free of charge in the coming months and pay-what-you-can educational programs performed by the Opera Colorado Artists in Residence.

To raise the $200,000 needed to fund these exciting programs in 2021, we have launched the Resilience Fund. Your enthusiasm and support are key to our current and future success!
