Our Mission

Founded in 2012 by Artistic Director/Executive Director Dianela Acosta, the Boulder Opera is immersed in its fourth season with a fresh, vibrant approach to the ancient art of Opera. With the intention of developing new audiences, Boulder Opera operatic interpretations are modern, eclectic and fun!

Boulder Opera is committed to making Opera accessible by producing three Operas per season that will be chosen from the standard repertoire as well as the lesser known; and to offer opportunities to local professional artists. The Company is funded mainly by donation, and we're grateful to our generous patrons for helping us keep this art from becoming lost in our community.

Start a new tradition with the Boulder Opera!

 


The Boulder Opera is committed to making opera accessible, inspiring and engaging to the community. Our goal is to develop new audiences for this old art form, enrich the lives of our community, and provide opportunity to local musicians. Our Children’s productions explore repertoire in reduced versions with a narrator and an ensemble orchestra. And our full-length productions, which include standard, contemporary, and rarely performed works, are experimental in nature, seeking to reach and entertain new audiences and delight the old. Our outreach program is designed to inspire and educate the young generation about opera and to make connections to other disciplines through our study guides and free workshops.
