About Central City Opera Guild & L’Esprit de Noël
The Central City Opera Guild is a member organization devoted to supporting Central City Opera, a true Colorado treasure. Since 1932 the company has presented a summer opera festival in its restored 1878 Opera House located in the historic gold mining town of Central City. The Guild was established in 1974 and those pioneering women created L'Esprit de Noël as their signature fundraising event.
All funds raised by L’Esprit de Noël go toward children’s programs led by the Central City Opera, teaching a younger generation the importance of music and art in our society.
