HDO to produce "Always... Patsy Cline"

Always...Patsy Cline

High Desert Opera is following up its successful 2-decade milestone last Winter with "Always...Patsy Cline" this New Year's Eve weekend.

The Avalon Theatre will host the production, which will have at least 2 showings over the course of that weekend. HDO welcomes Western Colorado's own Jeneve Rose Mitchell, who made it into the top 14 of American Idol at 15 years old, to the stage in the role of Patsy Cline!

21st Season donor drive

It's that time of year again, and HDO produces high-quality, fully-staged shows with the help of donors and sponsors. As Always....Patsy Cline enters the pre-production phase, so too does HDO's Fall Donor Drive.

Consider a donation to the troupe to help contribute to the production, or even becoming a production sponsor for our upcoming show.
