Due to growing stress surrounding COVID-19 and in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations, the Board of Directors of The Wright Opera House has determined to “press pause” on our programming through April so that we may all responsibly practice social distancing.

Thank you for your understanding and please feel free to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with any questions. Otherwise, stay happy and healthy!

Thank you!

A Historic Masterpiece

Built by the Wrights to counter some aspects of the mining culture, the Wright Opera House was intended to be the center of culture and arts for all of Ouray County. Now nearing a complete renovation, the Wright is fulfilling its mission as the premier performing arts venue and historic center in Ouray County.

In addition to events, the Wright has become a host for art exhibitions, with few spots rivaling its gracious halls and historic atmosphere. Exhibits change periodically throughout the year.

Art Exhibits

We're working hard to make the Wright Opera House an open and welcoming venue to organizations throughout Colorado. We're also trying to restore a facility that is over 126 years old. Needless to say, we have our work cut out for us!
