WHAT DISTINGUISHES THIS FESTIVAL
At the Santa Fe Opera, the show begins long before curtain. Opera fans come early for tailgate parties in the parking lot, preview dinners, or the prelude talks. Performances of the highest quality are presented in a dramatic theater with stunning views of the surrounding mountain landscape.
FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS
The 2020 season presents five operas in 37 performances and two Apprentice Scenes performances, running from July 3 to August 29. The Opera's 64th season, the second led by General Director Robert Meya, Artistic Director Alexander Neef, and Music Director Harry Bicket, explores classic works of the repertory as well as operas new to the Santa Fe Opera and the world's stage.
With its open backstage looking out to the Jemez Mountains, the Santa Fe Opera provides a view of spectacular sunsets visible during performances. This season opens with The Barber of Seville. From overture to finale, Rossini's masterpiece is the pinnacle of comic opera. Mozart's beloved final opera, The Magic Flute follows. Tim Albery's timeless production has been called one of the warmest, truest and most affecting shows in the Santa Fe Opera's history. Wagner's Tristan und Isolde will have its company debut and will feature Simon O'Neill and Tamara Wilson. Freud-meets-fairytale in David Pountney's staging of Dvořák's dramatic jewel, Rusalka with soprano Ailyn Pérez in her role debut. Rounding out the season is the world premiere of Huang Ruo and David Henry Hwang's, M. Butterfly. Based on the 1988 TONY award-winning Broadway play, the story is inspired by the true tale of a French diplomat who falls in love with a Chinese opera singer turned spy.
