Things to Do in Santa Fe

The Opera
The Santa Fe Opera is located in a spectacular outdoor setting, about a 20-minute drive from the campus. Its summer productions are world-renowned and often feature internationally recognized musicians and singers. Many students have discovered that they loved the opera, even those who had no experience of opera beforehand and who thought they loved only country music!
