The Nutcracker was worth it (not cheap - but the Ellie Caulkins Opera House is a great venue. Well done production - great start to the holiday season

Colorado Ballet is a regional company with national quality dancers. Directed by former ABT dancers, this company has a beautiful style and reperatoire. The company performs four to five times per year at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. If you are in town while they are in house, don't miss the show! Alternately, the company and academy perform for many... More

World class ballet is presented by this company. SWAN LAKE was excellent as the sold out house would support. I found myself free at the last minute and chanced getting a ticket which I did in center orchestra, row L. The soloists as well as the corps de ballet presented an outstanding performance that mesmerized every attendee and garnered rousing,... More

Actually saw this a few years ago. A litttle slow with my reviews. If you get a chance this is a must see. The performance was enthralling. I'd see it again - once was not enough. The music, dancing and stage set are great.

We enjoyed a flawless night of ballet at the Ellie Caulkins Opera house! Truly a memorable night watching Swan Lake which was performed beautifully by the Colorado Ballet. Truly one of the best performances I have watched in Colorado! There is only one performance left and that's today, but keep it in mind for the future. Denver has the best... More

As a frequent visitor to the Colorado Ballet I always look forward to my next trip. We saw a weekend matinee of Swan Lake and it was fantastic. Sharon Wehner is simply perfect in the role of Odette/Odile. The costumes were gorgeous and the music beautifully performed. Excellent job Colorado Ballet!

This is probably the best ballet and tap dance school in Colorado. The kids can be serious or leisurely depending on ambition. There are classes and learning pace for each kind of learner. The motivated kids get to perform alongside professional dancer at the performances of the Colorado Ballet.

I first saw the company perform at the Arvada Center for their "Evening Under the Stars" in which they danced selections from past seasons as well as some teasers from the current season. I finally got the chance to see a full performance when I went to see Alice in Wonderland at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. Amazing show, funny... More
