We offer a variety of learning opportunities for adults throughout the year. These include introductory spotlights, psychological insights and in-depth seminars during our season.
Consider the Source
Conversations & Seminars
The Santa Fe Opera is pleased to present the digital offering of Consider the Source Conversations and Seminars. Led by the incomparable Jennifer Rhodes, the series will be based on the source material for Santa Fe Opera’s 2021 Festival Season. Each month Dr. Rhodes and her guests will explore how the text source of each opera has influenced that production’s creation, including its concept, designs, role interpretations and more. Registrants can choose to participate in the Consider the Source Conversations, Seminars, or both.
Drama, Music and Meaning in Opera
Join us for a guided journey into masterworks of the operatic tradition presented with unmatched artistic excellence. The Santa Fe Opera offers two separate weekly seminars, with lectures and discussions centered on our 2021 Season. Participants will learn about and discuss the season’s four operas, including their composers, plots, musical characteristics and interpretations. Hosted by Dr. Jennifer Rhodes, the seminars will be held online and are designed for those new to opera as well as frequent opera patrons.
The Santa Fe Opera launches virtual Opera InSight: Looking for Love
Looking for love in all the right places? The Santa Fe Opera’s 2021 Festival Season spotlights the many faces of love. Of course, our operas have romance and passion, but they also have magic, mystery, mythology and madcap at their heart. The four operas presented are Mozart’s fan-favorite The Marriage of Figaro, the world premiere of John Corigliano and Mark Adamo’s The Lord of Cries, Tchaikovsky’s lush Eugene Onegin, and Benjamin Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream based on Shakespeare’s masterpiece of the same name. Each opera illuminates a different aspect of love.
