CCO Al Fresco

Enjoy performances from some of Central City Opera’s favorite local artists from the comfort of your own home. Filmed in iconic outdoor locations around the Central City Opera House, this concert series was developed and filmed in 2020. Additional Al Fresco performances may be added at a later date.



Join us for a new interview series where artists and administrators come together and talk about the world of the arts! Members of the Central City Opera administrative staff sit down with former and current performers, artists, technicians and community organizations to talk about opera, the performing arts and much more!

New Opera Central episodes will be posted regularly. Audio-only versions of each interview are also available on the the Central City Opera Podcast.


Opera Up Close

Our popular Opera Up Close program is now available online and for a limited time, you can access this course for free. Opera Up Close from Central City Opera introduces you to the art form and people of opera, both onstage and offstage. See photos of CCO productions, watch videos of performers from around the world, and take fun quizzes to test what you’ve learned.

Yoga and the Voice
