Santa Fe: Opera, O’Keeffe & More!

Trip #1: July 5-(10) OR Trip #2: July 12-(17), 2022

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 (maybe three?) wonderful performances await! Rossini’s sparking comedy Il Barbiere di Siviglia (“The Barber of Seville”), Bizet’s trilling Carmen, and an option (on Trip #2) to see Verdi’s Falstaff.


Enrich the opera-going experience with Pre-Show Lectures, a Private Backstage Tour and an Exclusive Production Discussion to learn how Santa Fe Opera creates the magic onstage.

On our last trip, we had a private meeting with the Assistant Director of Costumes. In 2022, will we explore sets, …props, …make-up? Come and find out!

Explore an iconic American artist with a day-long Private Guided Discovering O’Keeffe Excursion.

With Free Time enjoy countless shops, museums & galleries in the U.S.’ 3rd Largest Art Market.

Visit interesting sites and gain fascinating insights with a lovely City Tour by Open-Air Tram.

Use Free Time to explore the many offerings o the city or join in one or more of our Optional Activities, each offering a unique experience.

Whether or not you cook, you’re sure to enjoy our interesting & delicious Southwestern Cooking Class & Lunch!

Before a performance, delight in a Spanish or Italian No-Host Dinner; a great way to get in the mood for Carmen or Barbiere.

…and more!

Led by opera instructor and arts maven, James Sokol, the trip promises to be a magical mixture of art, architecture, opera, history, food & fun!

These trips are an annual sell-out. Spaces are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Reserve your space(s) soon!
