We've been attending the SFO for almost 40 years. Last Saturday I bought tickets to Butterfly. Tickets were $310 each for 4 in the "orchestra". Got there and we were seated in the mezzanine. That's over $1,200 for 4 tickets in the mezzanine! What a...More

Saw Candide with the fam here. The acoustics are astounding, even from the nosebleed section where we sat. The moat around the orchestra pit is cool. I wonder whether it serves some technical purpose. The venue is the best of any outdoor arena I have...More

Highly organized with parking attendants directing the specific "spot" you're to park. No need to dress for the opera. We saw everything from hippie gauze dresses, sundresses, to sequined gowns with limos. The theatre has two openings on the side which allows you to enjoy...More

We saw Candide at the opera on opening night, June, 2018. The show itself is a little odd, but the experience was fun. We took morning tours of the opera house, and the original ranch. $10 each. Very informative. Not much of a breeze inside...More

Before leaving Santa Fe, we wanted to drive and visit the Santa Fe Opera House which sits on top of a hill overlooking mountains as far as you can see! The views are spectacular and worth visiting even if you can’t attend an opera! We...More

This is the most beautiful, unique opera house in the world. Take a tour (if you are there off season) or go to the opera if you are there during the summer. Tailgate. Take lots of pictures.

We went on the tour Sat morning and it was absolutely wonderful. So much to learn and to see. It turns out that people in Santa Fe go to because each time they interview a different person within the opera business. I can't wait to...More
