Not a bad seat in the house. What could be more perfect than nationally renowned opera stars in unique opera house. While waiting for curtain time, you can take in the exquisite view of the beautiful New Mexico hillsides and sunset right from your seat. This year we saw the fun love story "Daughter of the Regiment". Lots of laughs,... More

As an opera lover who has enjoyed opera performances in Europe and the US, I have never been to an opera house in a more beautiful setting than Santa Fe. An outdoor theater with stunning views of the mountains, glorious sunsets, and 5 wonderful opera productions each summer (I just saw Isabel Leonard and Nathan Gunn in the world premiere... More

We enjoyed two different venues at the Santa Fe Opera. The first was the closing night of the opera "Daughter of the Regiment" which we completely enjoyed. We also enjoyed a fund raising concert for Santa Fe Animal Shelter with Emilou Harris and RodneY Crowell. Another fantastic evening. Warning to visitors from other climates: the evenings in the high desert... More

I have been seeing different operas at the Santa Fe Opera for 20+ years. It is a great venue. The remodel helps a great deal (100%) when dealing with summer thunderstorms ( you do not get wet). The acoustics are excellent.

I attended a concert at the Santa Fe Opera and had a wonderful time. The venue was beautiful. The covered open air seating was comfortable with wide seats and plenty of spacing between the rows. Watching the lightning off in the distance while enjoying the concert was nice. If you are going to attend an event at the Opera, make... More

Somehow, the Santa Fe Opera has managed to complete extensive renovations since the season ended last year. More restrooms, food and drink venues, new gift shop and more. It is always a perfect evening at the Santa Fe Opera and I am blessed to live here and be able to attend so many different functions in this beautiful setting. Most... More

Every year my wife an I attend all five operas and the two apprentice concerts. This partly out-door experience (seats are protected under a roof) is wonderful. Visitors to Santa Fe should call the boxoffice to find the times and dates for tours of the facility (some tours have fees, others are free). Tailgating before the opera is a good... More

My husband and I recently took a tour of the Santa Fe Opera with Linda and her husband Roger. It was fascinating to see the room where costumes are made and the area in which sets are created. The opera grounds are located in a magnificent setting with the beautiful mountains in the background. We are not opera devotees, but... More

Last night of the season. Sat high up but great seats there really isn't a bad seat in the house anyway. Great view of stage, orchestra and the music was lovely. An excellent rendition of Daughter of the Regiment. Very entertaining. Great scenery and costuming. Full moon added to a wonderful evening. Will be back in 2016.
