The Opera House does not need another great review. Not a bad seat in the house. Friendly employees and volunteers. Fair prices. If you are visiting Santa Fe for the first time you must know that the temperature swings 25 to 35 degrees during the...More

We should have gotten up early for the Mon. - Sat. 9 am insiders tour. We just missed it and were limited to a walk around the lovely and impeccably maintained interior. Would make it a priority next visit to get here on time.

Tickets can go from $40 to $200 depending on the opera and the seat, although no seat is bad in this intimate venue. Sometimes they of 1/2 price for seniors if purchased on the day of the opera.
