Opening Night Reception | Denver Event Photography

The coolest thing about Denver event photography is getting to be a part of awesome, important events. This one was a pretty incredible night. Opera Colorado had just opened their world premiere or Steal a Pencil For Me at the Mizel Arts and Cultural Center at the JCC in Denver. After the show, they held a reception for the biggest supporters of the new production along with the amazing cast and crew.

World premieres are always really exciting (this was Opera Colorado’s second since I’ve been involved) but this one hit close to home. Steal a Pencil For Me is primarily a love story, but it is also a Holocaust story and it is all based on real events. My family has their own Holocaust stories so these always stand out to me. The story revolves around a young man and young women who meet at the start of the war. Soon, they and their families are taken off to camps and forced to work for the Nazis. Through all the trauma, they manage to find hope in their love for each other.

Their story is told through letters they wrote to each other while they were in the concentration camps. At the reception were letters written to loved ones in response to the opera’s story. There were also plenty of drinks and food (and cake pops!) to go around. The room was buzzing with excitement after the show. Everyone was talking about how much they loved it. I’m so glad we were able to get a huge group photo with the cast and crew at the event as well!
