Name Your Seat


Since its founding in 1957, The Santa Fe Opera has been honored to feature the names of world-renowned artists in unforgettable performances: Frederica von Stade, James Morris, Susan Graham, Bryn Terfel, Joyce DiDonato, among many notable others. As we embark on the next great chapter in The Santa Fe Opera’s history, there is yet another name that we know will make a lasting impression on our iconic theatre: YOURS.

Our Legacy

From its very beginning, The Santa Fe Opera has continually charted a path of prudent growth and artistic risk-taking. We are relentless in our pursuit of excellence in all areas of the opera-going experience. Highly regarded for the caliber of our productions and unrivaled setting, The Santa Fe Opera provides a memorable experience for first time audiences and seasoned opera lovers alike.

In the spring of 2014, The Santa Fe Opera launched an ambitious $45 million capital campaign to bring the theatre into the 21st century, ensuring a unique environment for our patrons and artists. For the first time since 1968, we have completely renovated our Artistic and Production Facilities; we also made significant enhancements and additions to the Opera Club, bars, terraces, restrooms, and other public spaces.

These state-of-the-art improvements have been achieved while preserving the exceptional beauty of our campus and its intimate, almost spiritual connection with the surrounding landscape.

Your Legacy

We invite you to become an active contributor to the shared experience of audiences now and well into the future by dedicating a seat in The Crosby Theatre in your name, the name of a loved one, or in the name of someone you wish to honor.

By dedicating a seat in the theatre, you can make a statement of your commitment to the past, present, and future of The Santa Fe Opera.
