Valentine’s day is just around the corner, do you have any plans? And even if you do have some plans, maybe you can add these as just a little extra or perhaps a gift!
Denver truly has some talent in the arts and I can’t think of a better occasion to get yourself out to enjoy some of it. Here are a few options you could look into this year and most of these you don’t even have to have a valentine to enjoy or perhaps they could be enjoyed as a family.
Valentine inspired events:
Romeo & Juliet- Colorado Ballet, Feb. 16-25th- Let the Colorado Ballet take you away with Shakespear’s star-crossed lovers set to the stage with this romantic ballet, breathtaking choreography and musical score performed by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra
Aphrodite’s Switchboard, Feb.9, 10, 11 @ Performing Arts Complex at Pinnacle Charter
School; Feb. 17-18 @ Parker’s PACE Center, Feb. 24th @ the Newman Center-Wonderbound and Chimney Choir partner together to create a unique play, giving you a unique take on Aphrodite playing a switchboard operator who discovers she has the power to control the love lives of mortals with a single connection. But some wires get crossed and seemingly good intentions end up with some unintended consequences.
