We visited the famous Opera House during the fall, traveling there from Albuquerque. I didn't realize how cold it was going to be in there, because it's basically an open structure and the wind just comes right through it. It's usually much colder in Santa Fe than in Albuquerque, only 50 miles away. but the altitude in Santa Fe is about 2000 feet higher, accounting for the significant difference in temperatures. I was a little jealous of all the people who showed up with big blankets and sat under them, all huddled-up.
Parking at the venue is crowded but no problem if you are patient. The building is quite interesting, with most support beams over rather than inside the structure, allowing a relatively unobscurred view of the stage from most any seat. We sat in the balcony which is a good distance from the stage. Binoculars would have been a good idea. The seats are comfortable.
