We should have gotten up early for the Mon. - Sat. 9 am insiders tour. We just missed it and were limited to a walk around the lovely and impeccably maintained interior. Would make it a priority next visit to get here on time.

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.
