The Denver Opera Collective brings accessible & affordable summer opera to the Mile High City.



Dear generous supporters, past participants, and friends:

For our first DOC season in 2016, we pulled a rabbit out of the hat and we were a success! For our second season, we were thrown a huge challenge: produce 3 fully staged one-act operas, including Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi in 8 weeks. And again, we succeeded!

This season, we realized that we needed to catch our collective breath and work to transform our vision into a sustainable reality. We also wanted to return to one of our fundamental goals: to provide our singers with an affordable educational experience, not just a performance opportunity.

So, this season, we’re condensing our activities into a two-week opera intensive for singers, with 3 masterclasses (open to the public), individual coachings, and rehearsals. This will all culminate in a gala concert of your favorite arias and ensembles showcasing our singers and raising support for our 2019 Summer Festival.
