Opera 101 at the Santa Fe Opera

Guests of The Don Gaspar Inn who visit in August during the Opera Season will want to come in March for a unique lecture on opera. Popular local music educator, Oliver Prezant, will conduct a two part program, first providing a lighthearted overview of the history, and mystery, of this 400 year-old art form, at Collected Works Bookstore on Wednesday, March 10th, 5:15 PM to 7:00 PM, and Saturday, March 13th, 10:15 AM to 12:00 PM. The second part of the program will be held on-site at The Santa Fe Opera on Wednesday, March 17th, 5:15 PM to 7:00 PM or Saturday, March 20th, 10 AM to 12 PM. Attendees will have the rare opportunity go behind the scenes to discover the many facets that make opera a total theatrical experience. For those who complete both segments, graduation presents, awards, and incentives will be offered. The lectures are offered free of charge. Reservations are essential. Call 505-629-1419, ext. 105 or email to reserve your space. The Don Gaspar Inn, The Casa Blanca Inn, and Blue Lake Ranch are members of the Inns of the Southwest.
