You have been asked once.
He lands tonight, on his ship of ghosts, under the scudding skies. His high, thin voice – Ecstasy and ruin! Dracul, Dracula: the Lord of Cries! Deny him not his place.
John Corgliano and Mark Adamo’s exciting new work is a juxtaposition of Bram Stoker’s Dracula and The Bacchae by Euripides. The result is a searing account that points to the monster inside ourselves, not society.

Buried desires and dreams corroded with rust.
Potent emotion and sweeping drama take the stage as Tatyana’s confession of love is rejected by Onegin who, a little too late, realizes his mistake.
Tchaikovsky’s lush melodies create the intense drama of one of Pushkin’s greatest stories and Alessandro Talevi’s new production centers on the opera’s nostalgic theme of what was, what was not and what could have been.

Out of this wood do not desire to go.
Mismatched lovers, a group of actors, fairies and their King and Queen are in the forest. Paths cross, so do lovers, and in the end, all’s well that ends well.
Netia Jones leads the Santa Fe Opera premiere of this beloved work. With an eye toward the original Shakespeare and leaning upon traditional “stage magic,” this is a production not to be missed!

Join us for an evening of exquisite music featuring Angel Blue in her Santa Fe Opera debut with the Santa Fe Opera Orchestra and others led by conductor John Fiore.
Recognized for her beautiful timbre and stunning stage presence, soprano Angel Blue's voice has been hailed for its shining, agile upper register and "smoky" middle register. A regular BBC Proms presenter who is equally at home on the concert or operatic stage, Angel is quickly establishing herself as one of the best singers in her generation, having performed in over 35 countries in the last 6 years.

The Next Generation...Center Stage
The opera’s singing and technical apprentices take the mainstage spotlight for two unique evenings of staged scenes. These evenings are fun-filled “sampler boxes” of operatic styles. They are a great introduction to opera and a great value for families to enjoy an evening out. Our apprentice programs have launched numerous distinguished careers and these two evenings are the perfect opportunity to experience the future of opera – onstage now.
