~TRIP CLOSED~ Santa Fe: Art, Architecture & Opera
July 24 - 30, 2018
|This trip is closed, and can no longer accept applications.|
Spend 6-days/5-nights in a desert oasis where the earth climbs to the skies by way of adobe buildings and the Sangre de Cristo mountains – Santa Fe!
Understand why New Mexico is called “The Land of Enchantment” by experiencing its stunning Landscapes, fascinating History, traditional and innovative Cuisine, diverse collection of Art & Art Galleries, unique Architecture and, of course, the renowned Santa Fe Opera. Two wonderful performances await! Rossini’s sparkling l’Italiana in Algeri (“The Italian Girl in Algiers”) and Strauss’ comic Ariadne auf Naxos. Enrich the opera-going experience with Pre-Show Lectures, a Private Backstage Tour and a Private Production Discussion to learn how Santa Fe Opera creates the magic onstage.
Visit interesting sites and gain fascinating insights with an exciting New Excursion focusing on New Mexican Art & History, plus three Private Guided Tours, including a City Tour by Open-Air Tram, The Art of La Fonda Tour and a Canyon Road Stroll. With Free Time enjoy countless shops, museums & galleries in the 2nd Largest Art Market in the U.S.
Plus, our trip includes one of the most popular events of the year – Spanish Market!
Join in one or more of our Optional Activities, each offering a unique experience: 1) Attend a 3rd opera – Adams’ Dr. Atomic. 2) Enjoy a Chamber Music Concert (or, maybe two!) 3) Delight in a Spanish Market Cooking Class culminating in lunch. 4) Relax over a Canyon Road Lunch…and more!
With free time, enjoy countless other shops, museums & galleries.
Led by opera instructor and arts maven, James Sokol, the trip promises to be a magical mixture of art, architecture, opera, history, food & fun!
