Performing Arts

Santa Fe brings art to life with live music, premier films and cultural dance. There is no more beautiful way to experience opera for the first or fiftieth time than at the Santa Fe Opera. Tailgate in the parking lot prior to the performance, then soak in a sunset as the well as the arias.
The historic Lensic Performing Arts Center keeps each season interesting with theater, lectures, film, dance and music. Santa Fe has its fair share of festivals from New Mexico Jazz to New Music.
Or indulge in music of the masters during the Chamber Music Festival.
