This "center" has eight different stages of varying size and style - almost literally something for everyone. We recently attended a Broadway-style show at the Buell which is one of the larger and more modern facilities. Sightlines and sound were good in the lower balcony. Staff were professional. Overall it was an impressive theatre in which to enjoy the show.

Went to Celtic Woman and Denver Symphony for Christmas concert. Super Performance and a great facility. Sounds are awesome and carry throughout. Not a bad seat in the house.

The facility is quite modern and functional, the people friendly. Enjoyed "Finding Neverland" Dec. 29th. Was impressed with the sound in the theatre - and especially the performance. Wasn't sure what to expect, and it did seem a bit on the slow side before the first intermission, but the second half was excellent, and I would rate the show excellent... More

This is an amazing center. We had tickets for "A Christmas Carol" and we were not disappointed. Not only was the theater great but the actors were also great. If you don't see a play you need to go and just see the facility. It is fun to see several types of performing art theaters in one place.

We went to take in the Nutcracker and I could not believe how beautiful this complex is. I grew up in NYC and I have to say it was right up there with Lincoln Center.

Saw Christmas Carol in Stage theatre. Great seats/sound/and views. Helpful staff. Excellent production. We have been in every theatre and they are all magnificent, you will enjoy whatever show you see! Park in the structure, or we teend to stay in a hotel within a block or two(there are several). If you want to dine, Kevin Taylor does a great... More

First I'll review the theater, then the play. I go to the ballet every year at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in the DCPA, but this was my first time at the small, intimate Stage Theater that boasts "No seat is more than 13 rows from the stage". We were in Section 5 (stage right), Row E, which was seven... More

Every time we decide to attend a concert or event at DCPA, we are so proud of our adopted hometown! The recent performance of Barber's Adagio for Strings with a guest performance by violinist Augustin Hadelich just reinforced the rise of Denver as a major urban cultural center. The symphony has expanded its repertoire and offers younger and more expanded... More

One of the most enjoyable evenings in a long time. The ballet was absolutely wonderful and Sharon Wehner was outstanding! I could have watched her dance all night. The Opera House is a great venue.
