This opera’s namesake, Elizabeth “Baby Doe” Tabor is only one point on this love triangle taking place in Leadville, Colorado. Horace Tabor, silver magnate and lieutenant governor of Colorado in the late 1800’s, and his first wife, Augusta, finish out the triangle filled with love, betrayal, fortune and demise. Horace leaves his first wife for Baby Doe only to have his social standing threatened by the scandal and his fortune ruined by the silver crash. The arias will enchant and haunt you long after the collapse of the Matchless Mine.
