“If there is a better place to see opera during the summer than Santa Fe, I certainly don’t know about it.” Glen Roven, The Huffington Post

Santa Fe is a well-known art and cultural destination and one reason why is The Santa Fe Opera. This year marks its 60th anniversary and the line-up is more extraordinary than usual. The Opening Weekend Celebration begins June 30, which is a fully immersive and exclusive opera, cuisine and Santa Fe home experience.


The festivities include formal dining on the scenic opera grounds, a behind-the-scenes tour of production facilities (with catering), meet and greet with the stars, private dinners in some of Santa Fe’s most impressive homes, Sunday brunch and of course, the opening night of the first opera, Die Fledermaus.Dating from 1874, Die Fledermaus is considered by most critics to be the greatest of all Viennese operettas.  Waltzes as intoxicating as champagne abound at a Prince’s masked ball, where elaborate plots are uncorked and romantic assignations go astray.

Another notable production of the Santa Fe Opera this summer is the (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, which has won national attention for its unique adaptation.  To learn more about the Santa Fe Opera, click here.  And as always, if you are in town, please let us know if you are interested in viewing any Santa Fe homes.
