view web site ›'s insider take:

Regardless of your fondness for opera, the setting of this theater is incredible. Productions have been held on the site since the 1950s, but James Stewart Polshek's 1997 semi–open air structure is especially striking. Its two intersecting roofs not only allow for views of the surrounding Jemez Mountains but carry the sound to the audience beautifully. Opening night always means a big party—an opera tailgate event, actually, complete with tuxedos and ball gowns—and the singers and musicians are international up-and-comers, usually brought in specially for each work. Past productions have included Puccini's La Bohème, Berg's Wozzeck, and Donizetti's The Elixir of Love.
