For opera lovers, it’s never too early to start thinking about which upcoming productions you’d like to attend.

So while opening night is still about eight months away, Central City Opera just announced its schedule for the 2017 season.

The season runs July 8 through Aug. 6. The 2017 lineup for the festival, located about 40 minutes west of Denver, includes:

  • “Carmen” by George Bizet
  • “Cosi Fan Tutte” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  • “The Burning Fiery Furnace” by Benjamin Britten
  • “Gallantry” by Douglas Moore
  • “Cabildo” by Amy Beach

Here’s footage of singers with the opera company performing an excerpt from the 2016 production of “Tosca,” recorded in the CPR Performance Studio:
