OUR STORIES THAT SING CAMPAIGN

LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD In January 2013, Opera Colorado launched the STORIES THAT SING CAMPAIGN to raise $1.2 million. The response received from the Colorado

community so far has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are continuing the campaign to ensure that Opera Colorado remains a vital part of our community for many years to come. A generous gift today allows us to continue presenting opera of the highest caliber to the Denver area, as well as introduce thousands of students across the Rocky Mountain region to opera through our Education and Community Programs. Be a Voice of Opera Colorado and include a contribution with your season ticket order!

I COME TO OPERA COLORADO TO SEE THE OPERAS, I VOLUNTEER AT OPERA COLORADO BECAUSE I WANT TO HELP THE OPERA COMMUNITY, AND I DONATE TO OPERA COLORADO BECAUSE I WANT OPERA TO THRIVE IN THIS COMMUNITY.

I WANT OPERA COLORADO TO BE EVERYBODY’S MET. TERRY FRAZIER , SEASON TICKET HOLDER AND VOLUNTEER

GORDON HAWKINS RENE BARBERA RACHELE GILMORE DANA BETH MILLER

Verdi’s tale of womanizing, deceit and revenge, with one of opera’s most vivid and compelling characters, a vengeful court jester. Starring acclaimed baritone Gordon Hawkins in his debut with Opera Colorado. “Hawkins’ luxuriant baritone was the most impressive vocal performance of the evening. The audience gasped with pleasure from his very first entrance; this is a voice with grab.” — Arts and Leisure This classic production is based on Victor Hugo’s play “Le Roi s’amuse.” The story focuses on “the curse” – the opera’s original title – placed on Rigoletto.

RIGOLETTO IS THE ONE ROLE THAT I HAVE PERFORMED MOST OFTEN THROUGHOUT MY CAREER. AND YET EVERY TIME I PERFORM IT, I AM AMAZED BY THE SHEER BEAUTY AND FULLNESS OF MELODIC LINE AND PATHOS. TO MAINTAIN THESE QUALITIES THROUGHOUT THE COURSE OF AN ENTIRE EVENING IS VERY GRATIFYING AND A TRUE LABOR OF LOVE. GORDON HAWKINS, BARITONE


CARMEN

BY GEORGES BIZET MAY 3 | 6 | 9 | 11 | 2014 W ITH

SANDRA PIQUES EDDY JANAI BRUGGER JAY HUNTER MORRIS RYAN KUSTER

Full of sizzling opera hits, including the famous “Habañera” and the irresistible Toreador’s song. Come and experience the core of this iconic music and celebrated characters in this new production by Opera Colorado. The opera traces Don José’s ill-fated attraction to the alluring gypsy, Carmen. When Carmen casts off her ardent lover for the handsome toreador, Escamillo, José’s intense jealousy turns to vengeance. In this visionary adaptation, updated to 1930s revolutionary Spain, Opera Colorado’s intimate production of Carmen will bring the orchestra on stage, placing the musicians directly in the midst of the action.
