Sheridan Opera House

The Sheridan Opera House is truly center stage in Telluride’s thriving arts community. Historic, intimate and beautiful, it is an extraordinary venue for everything from concerts to movie premieres to private events. The Historic Sheridan Opera House was built by the Telluride miners in 1913 as a vaudeville theater and cultural center, attracting variety shows, orchestras and touring theater companies. Performers from Lillian Gish to Sarah Bernhardt to Jackson Browne to Jimmy Buffet have graced its stage. In 1991 the Sheridan Arts Foundation was created, saving the Opera House from demolition.
