- This old Victorian theatre carries a long cultural legacy. Built in 1861 with Colorado granite, the theater boasts of perfect acoustics behind walls that are four feet thick. After the gold rush subsided, the theatre stopped operations. However, it was reopened in 1932 and has been at the center of opera performances in Colorado. Inside the opera house, do notice the impressive fresco on the ceiling, painted by John C. Massman. The seating area is rather compact with 750 seats. Every opera is in English.
