Frost Amphitheater

Red Rocks is a naturally formed outdoor venue we visited just outside of Denver.

Part of the process of season planning involves visiting different venues to experience the works under consideration for Stanford Live. I believe that it’s crucial that one member of the curatorial team sees a work live in advance of programming it.


Over the summer, Laura Evans and I were able to see a number of shows at Toronto’s Luminato Festival. And just last month, our new Frost Director of Operations Mike Ryan and I toured Colorado’s stunning Red Rocks Amphitheater to better understand operating procedures at outdoor venues in preparation for reopening Frost Amphitheater next summer.

Here are a few more shots from our travels.
