“It’s been an interesting year to 18-months for everybody, and we were determined to do this Festival this summer. And so, we created a way that no matter what happened, we could produce it outside and in a safe way for both the performers and for the audience so that was what we wanted to do,” Pelham “Pat” Pearce, General/Artistic Director of Central City Opera told CBSN Denver.
