Hotel near Santa Fe Opera

A trip to Santa Fe is not complete without taking in a performance at The Santa Fe Opera. This summer, in its 61st season, The Santa Fe Opera will put on five major opera productions. In fact, nearly every evening will feature a performance.

Unlike other opera houses, The Santa Fe Opera House has an open air concept, which means that in addition to seeing a wonderful operatic performance, you will also have a chance to take in the breathtaking scenery of Santa Fe as a backdrop to the show. No opera enthusiast should miss seeing an opera at this unique and awe-inspiring venue. 

August Performances at The Santa Fe Opera

The five productions being featured this year are all new to the Santa Fe stage:

  • The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, 2017

This is a brand new commission by the company. Librettist Mark Campbell and composer Mason Bates created this bold new work, which depicts the life of the innovative creator, Steve Jobs.

  • Alcina, 1735

This work by George Frideric Handel is set in Rome and features a backdrop of the Charlemagne’s wars combatting Islam. The opera is based on an epic poem depicting these wars by Ludovico Ariosto.

  • The Golden Cockerel, 1907

An exotic ballet, The Golden Cockerel is based on a Russian folktale by Alexander Pushkin. It features bold and vibrant scenery and a seductive queen. This is the first production of the ballet at The Santa Fe Opera.

  • Die Fledermaus, 1874

Follow the complex, champagne-laden plots and deceits of the fantastic characters of Die Fledermaus, one of the most famous works by Johann Strauss.

  • Lucia di Lammermoor, 1835

Where to Stay in Town
