The Wheeler Opera House will host events with the multimedia dance production Nu-Topia: Tour the Mystery all this week.

Starting today and running through Saturday and directed by Roaring Fork Valley local Loren Wilder, this production — set to the music of The Beatles — includes dance, humor and multimedia visuals in service of a “cosmic message of our oneness.”

The event promises to convert the Wheeler into an immersive multimedia environment. The main performances are scheduled for Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. (a matinee is scheduled for Saturday at 2:30 p.m.)

It features lead dancers Amy Anderson and Greg Gonzales — a member of the Colorado Ballet — and dancers from the University of Utah dance department alongside local trapeze artists Jacque and Elyssa Edgerly.

Working with Nu-Topia and the Wheeler is Lead With Love, which is curating a week’s worth of consciousness raising events in the Wheeler lobby including free morning class offerings of yoga and meditation and daily lunch discussions.

“Lead With Love exists to shift culture from fear to love,” Lead With Love program director Nicole Lindstrom said. “Nu-Topia beautifully emphasizes the importance of controlling thought to eliminate fear and judgment.”

“We are very excited to be partnering with Loren Wilder as well as the Lead With Love team to bring this immersive new experience to the Wheeler to kick off the summer in a new and different way,” Wheeler executive director Gena Buhler said in a statement.

Tickets are $25 for adult and $15 for students, available at the Wheeler box office and http://www.aspenshowtix.com.
