The Santa Fe Opera was built in 1957 by conductor
John Crosby. The open-air theater was constructed on a beautiful Mesa, facing West, to take
advantage of majestic Santa Fe sunsets and an incredible desert landscape.
The original theatre seated 418 people and has been rebuilt twice, now seating 2,128
and attracting audiences from across the U.S. and other countries.
The Santa Fe Opera is an incredible adobe structure. The performance theatre is called
“The Crosby Theatre” in honor of its founder who served as director of the theater from
its opening in 1957 to the turn of the century. The Santa Fe Opera campus is home to training
facilities and rehearsal halls, providing opera artists from around the world a perfect
location to nurture their talent. When in Santa Fe, be sure to visit the Santa
