The Central City Opera is a much anticipated and enjoyed event annually. The productions are very well done, and the Opera House itself is something not to be missed -- the history of the place is incredible, take some time to learn about it -- you will be amazed.
The historic opera house has been carefully restored and is very comfortable. Their production of Baby Doe was excellent. It is the 60th anniversary of the opera which was first produced in Central City. Do also enjoy lunch or dinner at Rouge/Face next door.

We learned lots of interesting facts about... 更多
We spent two hours touring Central City and its historic buildings, including the Opera House. Great tour, guided by a member of their historical society. Make sure you use a guide to ensure you get in all the buildings. Make sure you also visit the off the main street museum and the submarine! I wish we had more time there.
