Fodor's Review

This huge complex, composed of an impressively high-tech group of theaters, hosts more shows—from classical orchestras to Jay Leno to Wicked—than any other performing arts center in the world. Spread over a four-block area, the theaters are connected by a soaring glass archway to a futuristic symphony hall. The complex anchors are the round Temple Hoyne Buell Theatre, built in 1991, and the ornate Ellie Caulkins Opera House, which occupies the former Auditorium Theatre built in 1908. The other five theaters include the small Garner Galleria Theatre and the midsize Space Theatre. The symphony, ballet, and opera have their seasons here. The complex has been run by the Denver Center for the Performing Arts since 1972, and 90-minute guided tours that take you behind the scenes are available by reservation Monday and Saturday for $8 per person; customized tours can also be arranged.
