SPRING TOUR

With stops over the years in Colorado, Texas, and all over New Mexico, we bring The Santa Fe Opera to you with free public concerts and performances for children. This coming year The Santa Fe Opera presents the return of:

 UnShakeable

UnShakable is an opera composed by conductor Joseph Illick with a libretto by Andrea Fellows Walters, the Opera’s Director of Community Engagement. Set in an abandoned theater in New Mexico 25 years in the future, UnShakeable is the story of Wyatt and Meridian, Shakespearean actors and former lovers who have varying degrees of memory loss due to Erasure, a viral pandemic resulting in memory loss. Separated from Meridian at the start of the viral pandemic, Wyatt has been searching for his love ever since. Exploring themes of memory, connection, and the power of story, UnShakeable incorporates language from some of Shakespeare’s iconic works to create a modern romance. 

UnShakeable premiered in April 2016 with sold-out performances. The commission and production of UnShakeable was made possible by a deeply appreciated grant from the Melville Hankins Family Foundation.
