Amazing venue with fascinating history.

Though the front lobby and outside is not all that ornate, the theater area is absolutely stunning. Great restoration work!

Although we did not go into the Opera House, as it was closed, it looks fantastic. So great that it is still being used and restored.

This is a once in a lifetime experience. Set in one of the oldest, historic colorado towns is the Central City Opera House, which still produces wonderful operitic perfomances during the summer months. The perfomers are professinal, the operas carfully choose each season and the old opera house just gives everything a unique setting. Come early and get a tour... More

The wife and high took a break from losing money in the casinos to take a tour of the opera house and Tanner House. Lasted about 1 1/2 hours, great history lesson from the 1800's mining eras that started this whole town. Highly recommend.

this historic Opera House dates back to the gold rush days of Colorado's boom times. The area around the Opera House is quaint with Victorian homes, old shops, and many interesting historical sites. The rest of Central City is rather brash with its casinos and "not so good" eateries, but the Opera House and its adjoining Teller House Hotel are... More

Central City Opera is Colorado's most valuable cultural treasure, always presenting top quality productions. The Central City Opera House is the perfect venue. It is small enough to let every seat be involved in the show. Since the installation some years ago of theater seating and an evaporative cooler, it is comfortable no matter what the weather. The Opera House... More

This is the only part of Central City that is even recognizable from twenty years ago. In the name of gambling every shop and restaurant have disappeared both here and in Black Hawk. It is a real shame but if you want to gamble it's closer than Vegas.

The Central City Opera brought The Sound of Music to Denver at the Ellie Caulkin Theater. I really enjoyed it. The character of Maria was beautifully played. The children were WONDERFULLY cast. Beautifully done. My only issue with this play was the lack of chemistry between the Captain and Maria. The actor who played the Captain was flat. I understand... More

We've had season tickets for a few years, and it's fun and exciting to see performances here. What wonderful shows we have seen, some classics like Madame Butterfly, musicals like Oklahoma, new operas like Three Decembers, Our Town, Dead Man Walking. Don't miss the Short Works performed in the old stable across the street before the opera, also the Notes... More

You haven't seen anything until you have been to the Central City Opera. Acoustics are wonderful. The setting is amazing. It's an old historic theater in an old mining town in the foothill mountains. It sits over a river so in the old days they open the vents to cool the place with the air from the river. Historically all... More
