Of Note

The Santa Fe Opera’s Apprentice Program for Singers is internationally recognized as one of the finest programs of its type. On average each year approximately 40 apprentice singers are chosen from a competitive applicant pool.

Last year, The Symphony had the honor of celebrating Christmas Eve at The Lensic with the Grammy® Award-winning Mark O’Connor Band,  who featuring a breathtaking fusion of classical, bluegrass, folk, and jazz renditions of holiday tunes, plus O’Connor originals!

Dafne by Jacopo Peri was the earliest composition considered opera, as understood today. It was written around 1597, largely under the inspiration of an elite circle of literate Florentine humanists who gathered as the “Camerata de’ Bardi”.
