The chance to attend an opera performance is often a thrilling and beautiful night, but perhaps never more so than when you attend a performance at the breathtaking outdoor venue of the Santa Fe Opera. Not only will you be surrounded by the beautiful sights and sounds of every Santa Fe Opera performance, but you’ll do so under the gorgeous night sky of the scenic northern New Mexico desert.
The annual Santa Fe Opera season runs throughout the summer from June through August, and tickers are currently on sale. The event sells out every year, so the sooner you plan which performances you want to attend this year (if not an entire season), the sooner you can plan your upcoming getaways to our romantic Bed and Breakfast in New Mexico.
The Santa Fe Opera venue is only a short drive from our Bed and Breakfast in New Mexico, which makes us a great home base for this and other adventures across northern New Mexico this summer. Whether you want to visit the famed Santuario de Chimayó, drive the scenic High Road to Taos, explore the exquisite museums, galleries, and shops of Santa Fe, or just relax, there’s nowhere better to stay in New Mexico. Book your room at our top-rated Bed and Breakfast in New Mexico today!
Last year saw the first full season of the Santa Fe Opera after the shutdowns of the Covid Pandemic in 2020 and 2021 and it was just as spectacular as always. In 2023, we expect more of the same. Somehow, this amazing series of performances in the high deserts of New Mexico finds a way to get better and better each year.
The open-air venue of the Santa Fe Opera has been called “one of the handsomest operatic settings in the Western Hemisphere” and a “miracle in the desert” – two descriptions that we think say it all. Moreover, in 2022, the Santa Fe Opera was awarded by the 2022 International Opera Awards as the Festival of the Year; a true testament to just how special these performances and the adjacent experiences are.
The 2023 season at the Santa Fe Opera is scheduled to start on June 30, 2023, and will continue through mid-August with another impressive lineup of performances. The performances you can enjoy at this year’s Santa Fe Opera include the following:
Though the performance is the star of the experience, of course, it’s not the only part of the night to look forward to. The preview dinner is also a beloved tradition at the Santa Fe Opera. The meal is great, of course, but the Preview Dinner also includes pre-performance talks that will most certainly enhance your viewing experience. If you’d rather enjoy a casual meal before your performance, you can always enjoy a tailgate picnic before the performance.
Many guests often ask us about the dress code at the Santa Fe Opera, and that is just as casual as you’d expect in the high deserts of northern New Mexico. In fact, you can expect to encounter a range of styles from opera attendees, including things like nice denim, suedes, cowboy boots, and plenty of turquoise and silver jewelry. This casual style is often referred to as “Santa Fe Casual.” Others, still, we be dressed in their finest evening attire. Whatever you wear, bring a layer, as desert evenings can be chilly, even in the summer.
Even if you aren’t lucky enough to attend a performance of the Santa Fe Opera this summer, there’s truly no better place to stay in the high deserts of northern New Mexico than our top-rated Bed and Breakfast in New Mexico.
