Gift of the Magi

The Gift of the Magi is a beautiful, lyric setting of O. Henry's moving story of self-sacrifice.  Contemporary composer David Conte has given the characters a broad, romantic musical palette evocative of Puccini.  The Gift of the Magi will become part of Opera Fort Collins' rotating schedule of holiday operas for families.  Seen previously on both coasts, OFC is pleased announce the Rocky Mountain premiere of this work.  Mr. Conte will be in residence with the company in December.

Bas Bleu Presents: Almost, Maine

The Northern Lights conjure magic, transforming lament or loneliness into love and laughter in Bas Bleu's production of Almost, Maine.

John Cariani's depiction of small town Maine comes to the Bas Bleu stage for a holiday season run through December 30th in Fort Collins. It's a thoughtful treatment that allows theatre goers to embrace "ordinary characters who are experiencing the extraordinary," according to director Dulcie Willis. Purchase your tickets
