Of Horace and Baby Doe
2021년 8월
This is the original Opera House Horace Tabor, the silver king, built to please his wife Augusta. Since there were no pleasing the woman, he finally decided to seek pleasure elsewhere and that’s where Lizzi, “Baby Doe”, came: young, beautiful and willing to please. Not to mention liking to take milk baths…
He divorced Augusta, married Baby Doe and the rest is history, but not a happy one. Horace lost his money gambling and investing foolishly and left our world. Lizzi lived a bit longer, in misery, until she was found frozen to death in the last mine she shill owned. Such is life.
The Tours are offered Fri-Sun only, but they are a must for any history and/or Oscar Wilde fan. During his one year tour of America, Wilde visited Leadville and lectured the miners(!) on the pleasures of aestheticism, i.e. the approach to art and beauty. Having talked to them about Cellini, the Renaissance Florentine metals sculptor, he described him with such superlatives, that the audience inquired why he did not bring this wonderful man along. When Wilde explained that Cellini was dead, the audience immediately asked: “Who shot him?” - shooting being the number one cause of death in those times in Leadville, the richest town in Colorado then!
The tour will take you around the museum first. Our guide, Desmond, was both knowledgeable and enthusiastic, always a plus for a history guide. Then, you’ll see the opera itself, featuring some of the original golden coated cast iron chairs with plush red seats and there will be no end to the stories of this magical place. It lasts about one hour. Highly recommended for history fans.

Beautiful building
2021년 7월 • 가족
This is a beautiful building. I enjoyed seeing the beautiful architecture and seats. I read somewhere that the chair Oscar Wilde used would be on display. When I asked, I was told we would not be seeing it. There wasnt an Oscar Wilde photo to be found nor any mention of him until I asked. But still nice to see a building full of history.

A must-see when in Leadville
2021년 5월 • 커플
Learning about the Tabor family and their impressive and enduring legacy is a must when visiting Leadville. Touring the Tabor Opera House is one great way to do it! You’ll witness a 10-year restoration in progress and see some amazing artifacts, including what a stage historian has declared to be “the finest collection of stage scenery on the continent.”

Save the Tabor!
2020년 8월
So glad to see them working to preserve this building. The Tabors were a huge part of Leadville history back in it's boom days (1870ish). Population soared to 30000, and it was ALMOST the capital of Colorado! The area is rich in history and so is the Opera House. Houdini, Oscar WIlde, John Phillip Sousa and Jack Dempsey are among those who performed/fought/disappeared on stage here. Incredible. Restoration has begun and it's a huge project.

Great Tour
2019년 8월 • 가족
The tour of the Tabor Opera House is a true tour. They take you to the ballroom on the top floor to the dressing rooms under the stage, and everything in between. Our actor tour guide could have a little more fun with the character, but overall we enjoyed the tour.

Tabor Opera House Tour
2019년 8월 • 커플
Finally got to take a tour of the famous Tabor Opera House! Last time I was here it was still privately owned. Got a lot of history in about the error and got to see the inside of the opera house - including the famous trap door that Henry Houdini made for his performance when he was here. The young guides - he was “Mr Tabor” and did a great job of explaining the history of the building and also the performers in there. Great tour!

We attended a concert the 4th of July 2017 and what a delight to visit this historical place.

We enjoyed the tour of the opera house and the 4th of July concert in 2017. I will be donating and sending copies of an enchanting childrens biography of Augusta Tabor. We definitely would visit again/

Ein historischer Schatz an abgelegenem Ort
2018년 9월 • 커플
Als wir ankamen, konnten wir direkt eine Führung machen, ganz alleine. Das Theater ist noch im Zustand von nahezu 1890, jedenfalls 90 Prozent des Inventars und auch des Gebäudes. Entsprechend ist ein großer Teil auch dem Verfall preisgegeben. Auch manche Decke hat schon größere Teile ihrer Verkleidung verloren. Trotzdem finden oben im großen Saal noch Veranstaltungen statt. Das wäre in Deutschland aus Brandschutzgründen mit Sicherheit nicht möglich. Auch die Bühne wird noch für Aufführungen genutzt. Jedenfalls strahlt das ganze einen sehr morbiden Charme aus. Auch ist die Geschichte der Entstehung des Opernhauses höchst interessant. Schade, dass das Gebäude nicht auch nur ein klein wenig hergerichtet werden kann, ich denke es liegt an mangelnden Geldmitteln. Diese reichen gerade aus, um den weiteren Verfall zu stoppen. Leider hat unser Guide extrem schnell und undeutlich gesprochen, außerdem hatte er es eilig, uns durch die vielen Gänge und Räume zu führen, so dass kaum ein Foto möglich war.

Awful
2018년 8월
It is such a crying shame this theatre is so awful and falling apart. The tour guide , even though very pretty and cute , was so disappointing. She kept saying she was going to “tell us stories” and she told zero stories. She also didn’t even give us the full story about Horace and baby doe and Augusta. If it wasn’t for google we would have no idea of that entire love affair. Don’t assume everyone knows the whole story. Take a minute to explain everything - instead of starting in the 3rd person as if she is baby doe and everything she says from that point on is baby doe speaking. Also, please START with the theatre. Don’t take anyone upstairs !!! Ever !!! It’s so horrific , it’s really not even worth taking people up there. Also, the tour guide didn’t even know what was authentic, a prop, what belonged to Augusta or Horace or Baby Doe. What’s the point.
We enjoyed it in our imagination, let’s put it that way . But don’t waste $10.
