About these ratings

Constructed in the late 1800s by business tycoon Jerome Wheeler, this opera house has been a major source of entertainment in the Roaring Fork Valley for more than a century. Today, this breathtaking performance venue remains an Aspen gem, featuring Victorian architecture, beautiful decorations and a stunning electric chandelier (Aspen was the first town west of the Continental Divide to enjoy electricity).

The theater still hosts regular performances ranging from concerts to theatrical performances, and according to recent travelers, you shouldn't turn down the chance to catch a show here. "Anything they offer at Wheeler is awesome," one TripAdvisor user said. "All seats are excellent. Don't wait to buy tickets as they sell out often."

The Wheeler Opera House doesn't offer tours, but previous visitors suggest stopping in for a quick peek, even if you don't have time to see a show. You'll find a full list of upcoming performances and ticket prices on the Wheeler Opera House's official website.
