The opera house is gorgeous, and the company is world class. This is an absolute must when visiting Santa Fe during the summer. And tickets come in a wide variety of prices, so as low as a movie date.

I don't know enough about the opera to comment on quality, but we also saw Fidelio, in German, and I think I'd prefer romance languages. What I can say is that the setting is absolutely the most gorgeous setting for a show, with a backdrop...More

A "must do" when in Santa Fe during opera season. Opera lover or just a casual "now and then" type you must see and enjoy the Santa Fe Opera. From tailgate parties to tuxes and candelabras, you won't want to miss this extraordinary experience.

Go. An outdoor opera house where the acoustics will amaze. The opera is held in the evening so take a jacket, but go to your seat early to watch the sunset go down behind the stage. Opera AND a Santa Fe Sunset ... WOWZAA!

Truly a unique experience. World class music within a spectacular building and glorious landscape. New Mexico allows for a much more mixed crowd than world cities. You'll see tuxedos and flip flops. Don't miss it.

Is it worth visiting if I am not attending any opera? How long would it be to tour the place?

Yes, absolutely. A tour might just entice you to attend. SFO's docents are terrific. Start to finsh tours run less than 90 minutes and the location and scenery are spectacular. Din't miss it.
