The Opera Guilds


Everyone Can Play A Role At The Santa Fe Opera, No Audition Necessary … Just Join The Guilds!

Guild members make things happen for the opera by forging new partnerships, bringing new energy and new ideas to the opera’s endeavors. Since 1957, the Guilds’ year-round volunteer services and financial support have launched and expanded some of the opera’s most successful activities.

Guild members sponsor Opera Insider Days, hold special fundraising events for the opera’s Community Engagement programs and also offer a variety of social and educational programs. Guild members also work behind the scenes on Youth Nights, the Spring Tour, the unique Pueblo Opera Program and host the preview buffet dinners, plus much, much more.
