A Night Beyond Your Wildest Dreams

Honoring Lanny and Sharon Martin

April 23, 2021

2001 Colorado Blvd, Denver, CO 80205

Due to CDC recommendations and the restrictions put in place by the City of Denver, Central City Opera has made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Gala. We believe it is the most responsible action to take during these challenging times.

We have worked with our vendors and partners to secure a new date - Friday, April 23, 2021. We hope you can join us when we can all safely gather again to celebrate Central City Opera and Lanny and Sharon Martin.

Thank you for your continued patronage and support of Central City Opera. We look forward to returning to normal operations soon and sharing our art with the community.

If you have already purchased tickets, we ask that you please consider transferring your tickets to next year’s Gala date or donate the value of your tickets back to CCO. You may visit centralcityopera.org/2020GalaResponse to respond online.

Central City Opera invites you to join us for an exotic adventure through nature and science at the 2021 Theatre of Dreams Gala!

Next year’s gala celebrates Lanny and Sharon Martin for the remarkable service, leadership and advocacy they’ve contributed to Central City Opera for nearly 40 years. Since their involvement in 1981, the Martins have guided CCO’s vision by serving as leaders on the Board of Directors, Guild, Endowment Board and special events committees. Their support in the negotiation, establishment and management of the endowment fund has elevated the company to new heights: ensuring CCO’s long-term sustainability and artistic vitality for future generations of art lovers.

All tickets include complimentary valet parking.

Tickets can also be purchased by contacting Events Manager Jeremy Schwartz at 303.331.7012 or rsvp@centralcityopera.org.
