Santa Fe, the capital of New Mexico, is one of America’s oldest and most colourful cities. At an altitude of 7,000ft it is situated at the foot of the stunning Sangre de Cristo mountains. Santa Fe has everything to offer for an unusual and exciting holiday. A lively multicultural city, it attracts people from all walks of life; artists, writers, musicians, film stars and many art dealers - more than in any other American city, apart from New York.

Santa Fe Opera is a well-established festival with an excellent reputation.
We are offering three operas in the spectacular open sided theatre with a panoramic mountain view, a few miles to the north of the town. 


Rimsky-Korsakov: The Golden Cockerel


Donizetti: Lucia di Lammermoor


Johann Strauss: Die Fledermaus


Concert as part of the Santa Fe Chamber Music festival
Opera by Mason Bates: The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs (with supplement)


We will stay in the St Francis Hotel just next to the historic Plaza.
