Went to the opera 6 times, don't miss the apprentice show case on the last two Sundays of the season. It is also interesting to go for one of the buffet dinners and hear the speaker before the opera.

This is a wonderful venue that is one of the best in seeing a concert of our World Class Operas. You can see the beautiful mountains, and has this great zen like feeling while watching the event. It's truly beautiful..

A very special place summers in Santa Fe. Opera lovers often book into town for a week or so timed to include the season's offerings. The schedule is set so singers stay in town for the entire season enabling audiences to see the entire repertory in one week as it rotates throughout the summer! The structure of the building is...

This opera house is so unique, set in the hills outside Santa Fe. One opera we attended was backlit by distant lightening (nothing dangerous here though!) The operas are always of the highest quality and the prices are reasonable.

There is no place in New Mexico like the Opera. Beautiful setting and wonderful opera and music. Always a great night.

I work in the event industry and visit several performing arts facilities and this one is superb! The Santa Fe Opera House is just absolutely beautiful. I really enjoyed that it was open to the New Mexican surroundings. Watching the sunset over the mountains during the opera was great. Since this was the first time I had ever been to... More

SUMMATION: This was not intended to be a comedy. It employs some good voices and orchestra performances, but is marred by amusing miscasting, continently errors, adaptation problems, and the warmest, fuzziest Nazis you will ever see. Someone in this production needed to learn something about WWII. If Beethoven could have seen it, he would be happy he stuck to music.... More

The Santa Fe Opera is on a par with any of the great U.S. opera programs.. The Santa Fe Opera is in a class of its own when it comes to the architecture of the opera building and the opera's magical setting in Santa Fe's mountains. It's worth a trip to Santa Fe just for one night's opera.

This famed opera house/company is a little drive out of town, but worth the effort. Did not get to see a production here, but will work on this for next time. Oozing with atmosphere!

The venue was the most beautiful we have ever seen.It is 7,000 ft. above sea level. We were transported by bus from our hotel, we had delicious dinner there. Our seats were located on the second tier so along with the most beautiful music we could experience a most beautiful sunset. What more could you ask for
