The Santa Fe Opera launches virtual Opera InSight: Looking for Love

Looking for love in all the right places? The Santa Fe Opera’s 2021 Festival Season spotlights the many faces of love. Of course, our operas have romance and passion, but they also have magic, mystery, mythology and madcap at their heart. The four operas presented are Mozart’s fan-favorite The Marriage of Figaro, the world premiere of John Corigliano and Mark Adamo’s The Lord of Cries, Tchaikovsky’s lush Eugene Onegin, and Benjamin Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream based on Shakespeare’s masterpiece of the same name. Each opera illuminates a different aspect of love.

Our virtual Opera InSight talks embraces universal themes that speak to each of us. The program emphasizes our experience as audience members, from the opera curious to seasoned opera enthusiasts. These five, fun 30-minute presentations offer in a psychological understanding of some of opera’s greatest masterworks and celebrate the joy this art form can bring to all of us.

Each episode will premiere every Monday in May at 2:00 pm MT on our Santa Fe Opera YouTube channel and will remain available for on-demand viewing.  No registration necessary!
