The Central City Opera Guild
The Central City Opera is the fifth oldest opera company in the United States. Since 1932, it has presented opera and theater productions in its magnificently restored 1878 Opera House. The Central City Opera Guild was established in 1974 and assists the Central City Opera with historic preservation and restoration projects, community education, cultural and social events and various fundraising campaigns throughout the year.
