    Santa Fe Opera

    Since 1957, The Santa Fe Opera has been the summer oasis for internationally-acclaimed operatic talent and opera enthusiasts. Enjoy three operas during your stay and mingle at private VIP parties.

    Mozart’s La finta giardiniera – July 29
    If you think love is enough to drive a person crazy, meet the hapless lovers chasing each other amid the musical abundance of Mozart’s early comic opera La finta giardiniera, “the phony gardener.”

    Strauss’s Salome – July 31
    This searing one-act drama of obsession and lust returns with a fresh staging that suggests the era when Salome was created: the Belle Époque period of material and sensual indulgence that prevailed in Paris before World War I.

    Higdon’s Cold Mountain (World Premiere) – August 1
    Deserting the Confederate Army and fleeing the hospital to reunite with the love of his life, wounded Civil War soldier W.P. Inman endures an American odyssey. The Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon captures the fervor of Charles Frazier’s thrilling novel Cold Mountain.
