Opera in Paradise

Now in it’s fourth year, Opera In Paradise continues to gain momentum.  This summer a superb lineup of performances and world-class artists will perform. Opera aficionados and first-timers will experience the power and passion of opera in intimate settings from Home Soirées in beautiful mountain residences to a fully staged production of Donizetti’s comic opera, Don Pasquale.
Acclaimed Maestro David Stern, world-renowned tenor and artist-in-residence Barry Banks, and up-and-coming opera stars taking part in the Crested Butte Opera Studio are among the many featured musicians at this year’s Festival. 


“Every year, the Music Festival’s opera continues to surpass my expectations and add to the aura that is Crested Butte.  I certainly will look forward to next year and years to come.”
