The historic Central City Opera House is fascinating in and of itself: Built in 1878 by miners, it boasts gorgeous fresco on its ceiling, and there are names of notable Coloradans of yore -- such as Horace Tabor and Buffalo Bill -- carved on the backs of the seats. (Those carvings were transferred when the seating was updated in 1999.) But the venue's real beauty lies in its programming, which is showcased with the opera house's beautiful acoustics. Every summer, Central City Opera presents three productions for opera lovers in the metro area, a mix of one classic, one lesser-known and one American opera -- proof that this small town knows how to put on a big show.
