Check back in the spring for more details on our enhancements.
Experience the unparalleled natural beauty of the Santa Fe Opera’s setting, its unique architecture and history. Discover how an opera production comes together with this “behind-the-scenes” tour. Tours take place Monday through Saturday at 9 am during June, July and August and last approximately 45 minutes.
A road map for your evening’s performance, these talks are complementary to ticket holders and are held in Stieren Orchestra Hall twice before most performances. The first talk is given two hours before the performance, and the second is one hour before. Reservations are not required. Seating is limited. Due to popularity, the first talk is recommended for better availability.
Prelude Talks are not offered on June 28 or before the Apprentice Scenes on August 11 & 18, 2024.
Book a comfortable round-trip ride to the Santa Fe Opera. The early shuttle arrives in time to attend our Preview Dinner or the first Prelude Talk. The late shuttle arrives 30 minutes prior to your performance.
Shuttle tickets must be purchased by 3 pm the day before; they may sell out earlier. Once booked, no ticket is required to board our shuttle; your name will be on the driver’s manifest.
