OPERA COLORADO CHORUS
Based in Denver, Opera Colorado has been committed to presenting the highest quality live performances of opera in their original languages since 1983. Founded by famed stage director Nathaniel Merrill, the company originally performed in the round in Boettcher Concert Hall. The company is dedicated to enriching the quality of life in Colorado through the presentation of opera performances that inspire audiences and serve the community through education and cultural programs. Over the years, Opera Colorado audiences have enjoyed performances by the best and brightest of the opera world. The company presents both established stars and emerging talent as well as engaging innovative directors and designers to create an annual season of traditional and pioneering opera performances. Since its inception, Opera Colorado has performed in partnership with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. In 2005, the company moved into the state-of-the-art Ellie Caulkins Opera House inside the historic
Quigg Newton Municipal Auditorium at the Denver Performing Arts Complex. Under the leadership of Gregory Carpenter, the company served as one of the hosts for the National Performing Arts Convention during the spring of 2008. To celebrate this momentous event, Opera Colorado produced director James Robinson’s acclaimed new
staging of Nixon in China at the opera house under the baton of Marin Alsop, Conductor Laureate of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. The Opera Colorado Chorus is a group of dedicated volunteers who perform under the leadership of chorus master John Baril. For more information about Opera Colorado.
