THE BALLAD OF BABY DOE
MUSIC BY DOUGLAS MOORE
BOOK BY JOHN LATOUCHE
Central City Opera presents an abridged, staged concert version of The Ballad of Baby Doe, their signature opera. Premiered in 1956 in Central City, the true riches-to-rags adventure of Elizabeth (Baby) Doe and Horace Tabor takes place during the pinnacle of Colorado’s mining history. An intriguing epic of love and loss, boom and bust, the story is set to beautiful music by composer Douglas Moore. This production is partially sponsored by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, and this particular performance in Leadville is presented by the City of Leadville in association with the Tabor Opera House Preservation Foundation.
