Amargosa Hotel & Opera House

The Amargosa Hotel, Opera House and Amargosa Cafe, localizada na Rodovia 127 em Death Valley Junction, were once the local headquarters of the Pacific Borax Company. Na Páscoa de 1966, the renovation and transformation of this unique and historic adobe complex began, to become the home and performance space of legendary Marta Becket, dancer, pintor e autor. Becket deixou o glamour de Nova Iorque, depois de atuar na Broadway e no Radio City Music Hall, to perform her own shows before her own hand-painted audience in a desert ghost town. Seus temas têm-se centrado em torno de conflitos universais, such as hope and despair, amor e traição, e ilusão e realidade.

Becket’s remarkable murals cover the entire walls and ceiling of the Amargosa Opera House. Eles eram 6 years in the making, e representam um grande marco local. Todos 268 Ciganos da Renascença, freiras, members of royalty and ladies of the night come to life under the lights, surrounding the living audience at each performance. Becket also painted portraits and whimsical scenes on the walls of the lobby, halls, e quartos de hotel.
