Mancos, CO served as the perfect backdrop for Opera Lafayette’s adaptation of Philidor’s The Blacksmith, presented in partnership with Mancos Creative District. This modern premiere is adapted and translated from an 18th-century French opéra comique composed by François-André Danican Philidor in 1761, to the late 19th-century American West, to pandemic-era Colorado.
