It may be Christmas, but for George Bailey it is anything but the most wonderful time of the year. Based on the 1946 movie of the same name, Jake Heggie and Gene Scheer’s brand new opera adaptation of “It’s a Wonderful Life” follows a young guardian angel named Clara as she attempts—with heart and just a bit of holiday magic—to prove to George what an incredible impact he’s had on his small town.

“It’s a Wonderful Life” is presented by the Eklund Opera Program. CU College of Music faculty and students—often joined by guest artists—bring spine-tingling musicianship to CU’s stunning Macky Auditorium. With lavish scenery and costumes and the CU Symphony in the pit, it’s opera of the highest order.
