Summer traffic in the mountains can often back up. There will be NO LATE SEATING until intermission, so plan ahead!
Information below is for our summer performances in Central City, Colorado. You may also want directions to our Denver Administrative & Box Offices.
We offer a reserved parking lot adjacent to the Opera House at $15 per car per performance (the Teller Lot). Parking can be ordered at any time, including when you place your order for tickets, up to 24 hours in advance of a performance (based on availability).
Free covered parking, based on availability, is offered at Century Casino, located about 1 block down the hill from the opera house. Some additional street parking is available in Central City, but please pay attention to posted signs as to whether they are specifically designed for patrons of other businesses in the area, as towing is enforced in some lots.
Buses can drop passengers off in front of the Opera House. Bus parking is available at the city lot by the RV park.
