If you’re looking for things to do in Santa Fe, you won’t have to look far. Recognized as one of the world’s leading opera companies and cultural festivals, the Santa Fe Opera has run every summer since 1957. The dramatic adobe theater blends harmoniously with the high desert landscape.
Founded by the late John Crosby, a conductor from New York, the Santa Fe opera house has presented over 1,600 performances, including nine world premieres and 40 American premieres. It has been the home of highly regarded opera singers including Susan Graham, Patricia Racette, Joyce DiDonato, William Burden, Kristine Jepson, Michelle DeYoung and Charles Castronovo.
The Santa Fe Opera also offers an Apprentice Program and, each summer, the apprentices present a special program for hotel guests on the outdoor patio at La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa. We take pride in sharing this cultural delight with our guests. Enjoy specially scheduled early dinners at our restaurants prior to a performance. Our staff will even prepare a gourmet picnic dinner for tailgating at the opera.
