The seating is comfortable, the venue is intimate, and the sound is outstanding in this remodeled, classic opera hall.

The Wheeler Opera House is a unique, historical landmark in downtown Aspen. It's been restored to its original glory from the mining days and boasts state-of-the-art technical equipment. The Wheeler attracts internationally recognized artists and performers, and yet is also utilized by various local performing groups. It's well worth a visit.

We were pleased with the Wheeler. Comfortable, easy access, great concessions and fabulous entertainment. What more could you want. So when in Aspen, be sure to check out what this venue has to offer. You'll be pleased to see this refurbished Victorian theater in all it's glory.

Recently renovated and wonderfully kept in style with its roots. This is the place to go for getting your cultural fix while in town. A diverse range of performers to be seen and a year-round program to suit many tastes.

Good concerts, films, opera, etc. Right in the center of town and a landmark that is worth visiting if you have a chance. The Aspen music festival may get the glory in the middle of August, but there are always great performances to be found at the Wheeler, and it is a 5 minute walk from the St. Regis.

Not an opera fan? You would surprise yourself if you came on Saturday morning from 10am to 12pm. I'm not a fan, but I learn so much from the 15-minute segments that talented young students from around the world come to prep and refine with the support of colleagues and a master teacher. At the end of each 15-minute segment,... More

We come here again and again. I suppose the most famous artist we saw was the Temptations but most any talent there is quite entertaining. This past winter we saw Keb Mo. Don't miss this guy. He was an acoustic blues guitarist and singer with 3 Emmys to his credit. The balcony was redone last year so the seating up... More

The Wheeler Opera House was build in 1889 so there's plenty of history. Its probably the best sounding theater in the West. Loved it.

We've attended numerous concerts and events at the WOH. All have been great experiences. This happened to be the Judy Collins concert. Had to laugh when we entered as the usher looked at a young couple and commented "wow, someone under 40". The venue has an updated sound system and other improvements. If you are in Aspen it pays to... More
