Built by H.A.W. Tabor, this massive three story building is the largest opera house west of the Mississippi and feature a large staircase entrance and silver bricks that were laid down in honor of the visit by President Ulysses S. Grant. Many famous people have performed or visited here.
i loved the history of the opera house, it was built in 100 days- the quality and the beauty of the features, not what you see in todays construction. the original back drops are absolutely beautiful and the grand piano is out of this world. i was fortunate enough to get a season pass, as my sister lives in leadville and i was there for 4 months, i would recommend to anyone who plans a visit to visit not only the opera house, but matchless mine, the mining museums and the train ride on the colorado southern, it is well worth the time.
This is an awesome place to see. It was very interesting to hear all the history surrounding this incredibly beautiful building. It was not expensive to get in. I think we paid $5 per person for the tour. The Opera House still has productions every year, so make sure to call ahead for tickets to see a show and help keep this wonderful old building in use. This is a must see if you are anywhere near this area of Colorado even if you can't stay for a show. There are many other interesting things to see in Leadville as well. It is definitely worth the trip. Enjoy.
