Emerald City Opera To Stage Epic Performance in Steamboat Springs, CO
Emerald City Opera Performing Elixir of Love in 2009
Opera in Steamboat Springs, Colorado? Why, yes! Founded in 2002 by professional soprano Keri Rusthoi, Emerald City Opera is Steamboat Springs’ very own little opera company. For their 10th anniversary, our hometown opera will perform Mozart’s comedic opera “The Marriage of Figaro”.
As one of the few small towns in the country that actually has an opera company, the community has been nothing but supportive since the opera’s inception, fully embracing the world of art and culture that the Emerald City Opera has brought to town.
And, even more importantly, not only does the opera company strive to enrich its community by producing and performing professional-quality opera, it gives back to the community and local and professional artists with the Opera Artist Institute, which provides an opportunity for emerging artists to learn and perform in a fast-paced and supportive environment. They also have a full array of Outreach and Education programs to help introduce the art form to our young people in a school setting.
If you happen to be in town during a performance, please take a moment to check them out. If you like opera, you won’t be disappointed.
