Dream On: Subconscious Takes on Art

March 21-May 2

Open First Friday, April 4th 5:30-7pm

Dream On  is an art exhibition featuring artists who’s work illuminates and manifests all facets of the dream spectrum, from imaginative and fantastical imagery, to subconscious and dreamlike explorations, to soul-searching and soul-finding revelations.  The whole idea of dreaming (sleeping or not) is often about questioning concepts of “reality”, pushing boundaries, and opening up a deeper conversation about our day-to-day existence.

Opera Colorado: Barber of Seville

May 22, 8pm at the Third Street Center

Figaro, Figaro, Fiiiiigaro!  Barber by day, matchmaker by night, Figaro puts his charm to work as he helps Count Almaviva woo the beautiful Rosina.  She’s such a catch that her greedy guardian, Bortolo, keeps her under lock and key with the intent of marrying her himself. Crazy antics abound and Berta, the maid, gets involved. But, no challenge is too great for Figaro’s madcap schemes! Filled with some of opera’s most famous tunes, this is a comedy not to miss!

Performed by the Opera of Colorado Young Artists, the Opera on Tour program brings professional productions directly to schools and community venues across the state of Colorado.
