“A venue like no other”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

The theater space enhances the opera experience. The seating is very comfortable and well laid-out. The subtitling is along a rail in front of the seat, so it does not distract one's attention from the action on stage. Open to the elements along the sides and behind the stage, the opera house really blends in well with its environment. The facility is just beautiful and worthy of the world-class performances held there.

“Acoustical Perfection and Views”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Performers are improving yearly and definitely worthy of a visit in Season. Book ahead. We like to take a picnic and enjoy the surroundings. Plenty of parking available. Tickets can be pricey; but good seating everywhere.

“Gorgeous setting”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

I've never been to an opera quite like the Santa Fe opera. I've been to operas in the Kennedy Center, San Francisco's opera, But the Santa Fe Opera is, by far, the most beautiful! The music is superb! A must for opera lovers!

“The Santa Fe Opera”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

The Santa Fe Opera is a very professional company. Each season there is one opera in English and each season there are five operas performed over the summer. There is an amazing apprentice program which I believe is unique.
