Help us continue the 90-year legacy of Central City Opera

Central City Opera’s mission is to sing extraordinary stories to spark imagination, inspire creativity and open minds to the breadth of human experience. Founded in 1932, Central City Opera is the fifth oldest professional opera company in the country and is renowned for exquisite world-class productions, competitive and robust young artist training program, creative education and community engagement activities. Our annual summer opera festival takes place at 8,500 feet above sea level in the Colorado mountain town of Central City, only 35 miles west of Denver, where the company owns and maintains 27 Victorian-era properties, including the intimate 550-seat jewel box opera house built in 1878.
