I really didn’t know what to expect when visiting the opera house but let me tell you that it was amazing. I have only been to one other opera house in my life but this was an eye opener. Beautiful venue and great atmosphere which I enjoyed a lot. The Opera house should definitely be on your travelers list when visiting Santa Fe.

The performance we saw last Saturday was the best we have ever seen in the US, despite living near San Antonio for several years where I acquired an appreciation for this style of dance. Passionate and extremely well executed. Excellent choreography. The highlight of our visit to SF.

Reviewed By 244jillj - Santa Fe, United States

We have attended numerous panel discussions, author readings and interviews plus musical programs from jazz to classical and always been pleased with both the venue and the offerings. The Lannan series, Santa Fe Institute programs and the Disruptive Dialogue series are always good and often lead to interesting additional research. The theatre itself is a richly decorated gem that is the pride of the downtown community. Remember in Santa Fe many programs sell old quickly so if something is of interest to you reserve your tickets and enjoy a night of unique entertainment and/or a program that will perk up your brain and offer new directions to pursue a wide variety of interests.
