My first time into this beautiful theater. I attended a screening of "It Might Get Loud". I loved the building and the space as soon as I walked in. There was a simple food and drinks bar with basic fare and somewhat overpriced wine by the glass. But hey-- at least there was wine, and decent ones. There was a... More

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
