Opera Colorado has announced its first live program since September 2020.

The program, entitled “Canciones de Nuestras Tierras,” will be performed on May 14, 2021 at Denver Botanic Gardens, and will explore the rich tapestry of Latinx music and culture at Denver Botanic Gardens through performances of opera, works by Latinx composers, mariachi, and baile folklórico.

The concert will be led by soprano Cecilia Violetta López, baritone Luis Ledesma, pianist Nathan Salazar, musicians from the Opera Colorado Orchestra, and Denver’s Mariachi Sol de mi Tierra and ArtistiCO Dance Company.

Recently Opera Colorado announced April in Paris and presented a double bill livestream. The company has also announced its 2021-22 season, which will include “The Shining,” “Tosca,” and “Carmen.”
