Opera House Tours

The docent-led Opera House Tours allow guests to experience the unparalleled natural beauty of the Santa Fe Opera’s setting, its unique architecture and its open-air theater. Guests will also hear about its history and the season.


Ranch Tours

An extended tour of the grounds, known as the “Opera Ranch,” meets at the Box Office on Fridays in June, July and August.

Prelude Talks

A road map for your evening’s performance, these talks are complimentary 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. Prelude Talks are not offered on opening night or before either of our Apprentice Scenes.


Book a comfortable, round-trip ride from Santa Fe arriving approximately 25 minutes prior to your performance time. Please be at your designated location at least 5 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time.
