A visit to the Santa Fe Opera House is not to be missed, whether during the summer opera season or be it Saturday morning tours during the warmer months. Open at three sides, with outdoor public areas for gazing upon rapturous sunsets while sipping the libation of your choice, this architectural structure is like the great prow of a ship... More

The Santa Fe Opera is a location where can enjoy great music, great voices, scenic views, and beautiful experiences. There are places to eat and tailgating with family and friends provides an entry into the relaxed Santa Fe life style. There is always an excellent lecture prior to the opera, and the patio is a place to enjoy a drink... More

If one is an opera person you probably already know about our opera. But if you are a "newbie" as I was originally, do try it out. The setting itself is glorious. I knew next to nothing about opera but now I'm a season ticket holder. What helped me were the lectures before each opera, many given by an entertaining... More

We have been to the Santa Fe Opera house many times, but we especially enjoyed the Mariachi Extravaganza which was held at the Opera house a couple of times. The acoustics are tremendous and the music was great. We went to the Mariachi Extravaganza this year and it was held outdoors at Fort Marcy Park. What a difference and we... More

The opera is one of my favorite places. I have never been disappointed with a seat or with the quality of the music, and I have seen many productions here. Seats can be very affordable. Also make sure you tail-gait before the show.

This venue has just under gone renovations and continues to add dining and improvements for the enjoyment of it's patrons. An evening thunderstorm with glorious lightening all around you, only adds to the spectacle of the performance you are viewing. All manner of dress is seen, men in shorts to tuxes, women in evening gowns to Levi's and sneakers. But... More

My daughter and myself went to see Cold Mountain in August, which was fantastic, the setting of the Opera House and the open style added something magical to the whole experience, as the sun went down the whole the view was spectacular, a little lightening and some rumbling thunder made sure it was an evening never to be forgotten.

If you like opera and dramatic architecture, don't miss the Santa Fe Opera House. Open during July and August, that is the season when thunderstorms are most frequent in Santa Fe. We have watched dramatic weather serve as the backdrop to dramatic performances. Other evenings it is just a pleasure to watch the sunset over the beautiful mountains that surround... More

A must during your summer in Santa Fe. A unique, professional, elegant experience that you will never forget. Make sure you arrive early for the tailgating: bring your champagne and caviar for a true Santa Fe experience. Attend the pre-opera lecture by an experience professional for a relaxing introduction to the evenings productions. Buy tickets in advance, visit the opera... More
