This brilliant, partially covered amphitheater offers not only views of the stage but also stunning, sweeping views of the the Sangre de Christo and Jemez mountain ranges in the distance. The world-renowned opera company presents five works in repertory each summer. Book well in advance, and don't miss the elegant tailgating in the parking lot (some participants go as far as white table linens and sparkling wine) before the performance. A picnic can be ordered (at least 48 hours in advance) for pick-up two hours before performances or you can cobble together your own basket of goodies from local restaurants. Tablecloths not included.
