About the Santa Fe Opera:

Every July and August since 1957, opera lovers have been drawn to the magnificent northern New Mexico mountains to enjoy productions by one of the world’s premier summer opera festivals. Here, The Santa Fe Opera’s dramatic adobe theater blends harmoniously with the high desert landscape. It is this fusion of nature and art that leaves such an enduring impression on all who come. More than half the audience of 85,000 comes from outside New Mexico, representing every state in the union as well as 25 to 30 foreign countries.

More than 2,000 performances of nearly 164 different operas have been given here, including 15 world premieres and 45 American premieres, among them LuluThe Cunning Little VixenCapriccio, and Daphne. Recent premieres include the world premiere of Madame Mao (2003) by Bright Sheng, the American premiere of Thomas Ades’s The Tempest (2006), the American premiere of Tan Dun’s Tea: A Mirror of Soul (2007), the world premiere of The Letter (2009) by Paul Moravec, the world premiere of Pulitzer Prize winner Jennifer Higdon’s Cold Mountain (2015), and the world premiere of The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs (2017) by Mason Bates.

Casts are drawn from the world’s most talented young singers, and production teams of conductors, directors, and designers are international as well. Many singers whose names are now found on the rosters of the world’s leading opera houses began their careers in Santa Fe. They include William Burden, Joyce DiDonato, Michael Fabiano, Brandon Jovanovich, Kate Lindsay, Jay Hunter Morris, and Susanna Phillips.
