Last “Rocky Mountain High” at Opera House?
When Chris Collins showed up at the historic Tabor Opera House (TOH) last week, to touch base about tonight’s show, volunteer Sally did a double take and thought she was seeing a ghost, wrote owner Sharon Bland on the TOH Facebook Page.
And if that’s the case for the artist, then Leadville can only hope to return the favor by showing off how glorious “Rocky Mountain High” summers can be. Collins and the Boulder Canyon Band won’t have to look very far off historic Harrison Avenue for inspiration to sing Denver’s poetic lyrics about natural beauty and how it helps transcend the human condition.
So if you’re a fan, the show starts tonight at 7:30 p.m. General Admission Tickets are $20.
Oh, and there’s one more reason you may want to catch this show – or some other event at the opera house this summer. Recently, owners Bill and Sharon Bland went “on the record” concerning the Tabor’s future. While they are still hopeful that they will find the right owner for the historic venue, “this will be our last summer,” said Bill Bland at a recent volunteer dinner. So, if you’ve been putting off seeing a show at this incredible Leadville gem, time’s a wastin!
