Rising stars: Opera apprentices
Although the apprentice singers at Santa Fe Opera are all in the early stages of their careers, many of them have already appeared in productions with companies of national and even international repute. This year, they all get time in the spotlight when the Opera features them in two entirely different programs of fully staged operatic scenes on the theater’s main stage. The programs take place a week apart, at 8 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 16, and 8 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 23. Repertoire was still falling into place at press time. Tickets are priced in the wallet-friendly range of $5 to $15. They can be had by calling 505-986-5900 or 800-280-4654 or through www.santafeopera.org. Santa Fe Opera is located seven miles north of the city on U.S. 84/285. — J.M.K.
