Picture 105Puccini’s classic Madama Butterfly kicks off Central City Opera’s Colorado Summer Musical Festival. It has a reputation as one of the premiere summer musical festivals in the state, which is a reputation that’s well deserved. Showing performances amongst Colorado’s beautiful mountain setting, Central City Opera still keeps the quality of its performances with internationally acclaimed artists, visually stimulating sets, decadent costumes and a professional live orchestra. Other summer headliners include Orpheus in the Underworld and Three Decembers, along with many other short festival extras and events.
