Santa Fe Opera Free and Cheap Concerts and Events

Santa Fe Opera offers a bunch of free and cheap concerts and events for the summer 2011 season.

A Free Santa Fe Community Concert on Thursday, July 28, 2011 presents arias, sacred music and songs from musical theatre, performed by opera apprentice. It’s at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi by Santa Fe Plaza at 11:30 am, but get there early – seating starts at 11 am.

Free Opera Apprentice Concerts in Santa Fe start at 6 pm. They take place:

  • Tuesday, August 9, at Encantado Resort’s downtown concierge lounge
  • Wednesday, August 17, at La Posada Resort

Santa Fe Opera Insider Days give a free behind-the-scenes view of the opera on Saturday mornings through August 27. They even throw in free coffee and muffins at a reception hosted by Opera Guild members, followed by a talk by an Opera staff member, then a backstage tour. You have to get up early, but it should be worth it! Insider Days start at 8:30 am on Saturdays, meeting at the The Santa Fe Opera Box Office.

If you’d rather go on a weekday, regular Santa Fe Opera backstage tours run daily (excluding Sundays) at 9 am until August 27, 2011. Those require a $5 fee, although children 17 and under go free.  Again, you meet at the box offices and you don’t need to book in advance

Santa Fe Opera Apprentice Showcase Scenes offer heavily discounted opera tickets for two concerts on Sunday August 14 and Sunday August 21, both at 8 pm. These evening concerts are produced by apprentice technicians, with fully staged scenes from popular operas that should be accessible for a family visit. Tickets cost $21 for adults and $7 for children aged 6 to 17, and you need to book tickets in advance for Santa Fe Opera Apprentice Scenes concerts.
