A TRADITION OF INNOVATION: sounds FROM santa fe opera
Since the Opera’s founding in 1957, the expansion of the operatic repertoire through commissions, American and world premieres has been of paramount importance and a point of pride for the company. The recordings of The Santa Fe Opera allow you to take the latest and greatest in 20th and 21st century American opera home with you. They are available through the Santa Fe Opera Shop located next to the Box Office.
The album was released on the PENTATONE label in 2018 and has been praised as “an impressive achievement” by Gramophone. In February 2019, the recording won Best Opera Recording at the 61st GRAMMY Awards.
Released in 2016 on the PENTATONE label, the Santa Fe Opera’s recording of Cold Mountain received two GRAMMY nominations, for best opera recording and best contemporary classical composition.
The Santa Fe Opera is proud to play a major role in the commissioning and producing of new American opera. Our company has produced 16 world premieres, in addition to over 40 American premieres.
