“SHOW.. follow the sign”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Tucked away behind the hotel Sheridan is the old Opera House of Telluride. Decorated in American Art Nouveau, it is a gem to behold this rustic opera house of the west. Lovely Gem!!

“Acoustic Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This 100 year old opera house really did it for me and my group of friends. We did not even know who were going to see. What we found was anyone would sound good in this venue with acoustics like I have never heard before...it almost moved me to tears. And as it turns out the organization's choice of acts is also primo. Seryn was such a beautiful surprise. I was stunned and happy upon leaving and really wanted more. A must do in Telluride, get tickets ahead of time.

“Amazing little theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

While in Telluride I had a chance to see a film at the opera house. I love the small venue, the balcony and the intimacy of the space. The sound and lighting work perfectly and it was wonderful to hear of the history of the opera house and experience it for myself. If you get a chance, you should go.

“Film Festival”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

The old town feel, The Opera House is a historical site here in Telluride. It makes you feel like it would back in the day it opened.

“Not Exactly Comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

We saw a film while in town for a conference. The wooden folding chairs were not ideal for long-time seating. The theatre is lovely and kudos to Telluride for keeping it alive!
