The Historic Tabor Opera House - Leadville, Colorado
A Showcase of our past. A Stage for our future.
“On Harrison Avenue in Leadville stands the elegant brick Tabor Opera House, the most imposing edifice in the city and conceded by all to be the finest theater west of the Missouri River. All the appointments of this temple of amusement are first-class in every respect; the scenery artistic, and under the full flood of gas-light the coziest place for lovers of the legitimate drama to throw off the busy cares of life and yield to the fascinations of music and imagery.” 1880 report by Lewis A. Kent in Leadville the City, Mines, and Bullion Product
