Experience Salome at the Santa Fe Opera
The Story of New Mexico program at UNMCE invites you to experience Salome at the Santa Fe Opera. The operas of Richard Strauss have held a special place at The Santa Fe Opera since its opening season, none more so than Salome, his 1905 adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s study of extreme decadence. Salome established Strauss’ reputation as an opera composer, provoking a storm of controversy on both sides of the Atlantic. This searing one-act drama of obsession and lust returns with a fresh staging that suggests the era when Salome was created: the Belle Epoque period of material and sensual indulgence that prevailed in Paris before World War I.
Fee includes transportation, tickets for Section 10 (side mezzanine; $35) or Section 9 (middle mezzanine; $76) and a delicious dinner buffet on the grounds, which offer spectacular views of the surrounding Sangre de Cristo and Jemez Mountains. A guest speaker also gives an informative lecture about the evening’s opera during dessert.
When: Saturday, July 18, 2015 from 4:30PM – 11:30PM
