Opera Comes to Mancos

Presented in partnership with Mancos Creative District, Opera Lafayette presented Le Maréchal ferrant (The Blacksmith) in front of a live audience at the Reddert Ranch outside Mancos, Colorado. Originally scheduled for Mancos Opera House, due to COVID-19 the performances were moved outdoors at the ranch, in front of the historic Menefee Barn and Blacksmith Shop on Echo Basin Road.

Bales of hay in the meadow in front of the barn designated the areas where each group could sit safely distanced from other audience members and at least 25 feet from the performers. Opera Lafayette established safety guidelines in-line with CDC recommendations for everyone to follow during the entirety of the production period.
