If you enjoy the opera ths the place to spend a splendid summer evening. Start time is determined by sunset so plan on a late evening. Open air but protected from rain, the sound quality is wonderful. For anyone wishing a special evening this the place for family and friends

I love that the SF Opera not only attracts A-list opera talent, but also that it is presented in the open air in the last summer evenings. I have attended one or two operas every season for the last 20 years.

We attend two or three operas per season and always love the SF Opera House environment. I will warn tho to seriously consider whether to attend one of the "firsts" as we have not always enjoyed them, prefer the classics. The facility is wonderful, especially at sunset as you get to enjoy the hills and the setting sun.

Our second visit for concert. Too loud, but we had fun anyway. We enjoy the indoor/outdoor aspect of the Opera, and the views at sunset are spectacular. A real New Mexico icon. We'll be back.

This is a place worth visiting, if you're from out of town, regardless of whether you're a super fan of whatever music is being performed. The combination of listening to high quality opera while watching the sun set is unbeatable. And there are great little translation boxes on the back of the seat in front of you, making opera easier... More

The Santa Fe Opera can provide the music experience of a lifetime. The venue itself is an open air theater with sheltered balconies in the back and a few covered rows in front of the stage. It is a magnificent piece of soaring modern architecture and a lovely place to experience splendid productions of opera. It actually has views of... More

One of the great opera houses in the world, a must see when in Santa Fe. Make sure you bring a jacket, nights get really chilly in the desert.

Living in Santa Fe, New Mexico, it's magic to be able to enjoy the Santa Fe Summer Opera from end of June to third week in August where you will enjoy world famous Operas being performed as well as enjoy world class Opera Singers.

I have visited this venue several times and am always impressed. It is a beautiful indoor/outdoor venue with professional opera. The facility is well kept, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. It is a place you can visit in jeans or a tux. Great acoustics, not a bad seat in the house. Attend a lecture prior to the opera. Some... More
