Founded in 2012 by Artistic Director/Executive Director Dianela Acosta, the Boulder Opera is an exciting new venture that approaches the ancient art of Opera with fresh, modern interpretations and a spin on the classics. Our mission is to bring new audiences, especially young audience members, to the theater and other venues in Boulder County.
Every season the Boulder Opera will produce one full-length Opera and two abridged Operas in our Children’s Series chosen from the standard repertoire.
The Children’s Series is all about building new audiences and focuses on making opera fun, accessible, and affordable. Repertoire for the Children's Series is chosen from well-known and familiar works. The performances are one hour long and, with the help of a narrator, are engaging and educational at the same time!
Our full-length productions explore rarely performed Operas and use innovative multimedia in unique venues with the goal of developing new audiences for this age-old genre.
All our productions will feature an ensemble orchestra, and will offer opportunities to local professional artists and musicians to collaborate.
