Each year the auditions enable the finest young operatic talent to compete for awards. The Rocky Mountain Regional winner then has the opportunity to compete on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera in New York City for a national award. Your annual Patron Membership provides the Colorado-Wyoming District and Regional Awards and helps defray audition costs. We pay award money, hall rental and staff, and judges’ expenses (they donate their time). Your donations mean we can support our wonderful young singers. If you’re already a patron, thank you for your generous donation. Your contribution ensures the future of our local auditions FREE of charge and helps build the careers of tomorrow’s opera stars. Please join us or renew your support today!

As we eagerly anticipate the Colorado-Wyoming District auditions on January 25 and the Rocky Mountain Regional Finals on January 26, we invite you to join fellow opera lovers for an afternoon of great singing, hors d’oeuvres, and wine featuring the Opera Colorado Artists in Residence. Hear these phenomenal singers in the intimacy and comfort of the Moffat Depot room at Balfour Riverfront Park’s elegant downtown location,1500 Little Raven St, Denver, CO 80202 —and enjoy free valet parking (no tipping)! A 3:30 start time will allow symphony goers to attend right after the afternoon concert, and accommodate those with evening plans as well. Space is limited, so buy your ticket today by clicking below. Requested donation is $35 per person in advance, $40 at the door, all food and beverages included. We hope you’ll consider an additional donation to help support our mission of helping young singers’ dreams come true.
The Opera Colorado Artists in Residence (previously called the Opera Colorado Young Artists) are selected from hundreds of applicants for an eight month residency. Each season they bring opera to thousands of people across Colorado, performing in schools, community centers, and other venues. They also take on select mainstage roles for Opera Colorado; and are the featured performers in the annual Student Matinee. While in Denver, they receive training and coaching from artistic staff and guest artists. Last fall, several of them participated in a Master Class by Renee Fleming. The program’s director Cherity Koepke will be joining us on February 9 to introduce you to these delightful singers so you can learn about their backgrounds—some of them quite unusual! You’ll also have a chance to visit with them at the reception. This event will sell out, so get your tickets by clicking the button below, or send a $35 check to Steve Dilts, 1500 Little Raven Street, Apt. 406, Denver, CO 80202.
