Opera Colorado has announced new COVID-19 guidelines.

The company noted that starting on March 14, Opera Colorado patrons will no longer be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccine, a negative test, or wear a mask while attending Opera Colorado performances at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House or at other venues in the community.

The company added, that while masks are not required, patrons may wear a mask based on personal preference or risk.

All ticketed patrons will receive email communications with full details including the status of its COVID-19 vaccination and mask policy prior to their performance.

In a statement, Greg Carpenter, General & Artistic Director of Opera Colorado said, “Opera Colorado is pleased to join with the resident companies in this coordinated lift of mask and vaccine mandates for our patrons. Since the fall, we have adhered to guidance from our local and state government, and we continue that commitment as we make this change. We are looking forward to seeing our audiences at Carmen in May.”
