Central City Opera Announces Casting For 75th Anniversary 2007 Festival
On April 12, 2014, Arizona Opera opened its series of performances of Donizetti's Don Pasquale in Tucson. Chuck Hudson’s production of this opera combined Commedia dell’arte with Hollywood movie history.
Denver, Colo.— The artists have been selected for Central City Opera’s (CCO) historic 2007 75th Anniversary Festival. This monumental year is celebrated with the world premiere of Chinese opera, Poet Li Bai, presented in partnership with the Asian Performing Arts of Colorado as a special offering with only six performances. The company’s regular 2007 festival season features three new productions, including Verdi’s La Traviata, Massenet’s Cinderella and Menotti’s The Saint of Bleecker Street. Four operas will be presented in one festival for the first time in the history of Central City Opera during the 2007 Festival, which runs June 30 through Aug. 19 at the Central City Opera House in Central City, CO.
