Set in the high desert of New Mexico, the Opera performs in an environment that is both mystical and magical and has become an annual gathering place for opera patrons and professionals from around the world. The Santa Fe Opera's mission is to advance the operatic art form by presenting ensemble performances of the highest quality in a unique setting with a varied repertoire of new, rarely performed, and standard works; to ensure the excellence of opera's future through apprentice programs for singers, technicians and arts administrators; and to foster and enrich an understanding and appreciation of opera among a diverse public. The Opera was founded in 1957 by the visionary artist, educator, and administrator John O. Crosby who served as its first General Director. In 2000, Crosby was succeeded by General Director Richard Gaddes who retired in 2008 and was succeeded by the Opera's current General Director Charles MacKay. Under their leadership over the past 60 years, The Santa Fe Opera has given more than 2,000 performances of nearly 164 different operas, including 15 world premieres and 45 American premieres. Casts and production teams are assembled from some of the finest talent across the United States and abroad. The Opera's Apprentice Programs for Singers and Technicians are internationally recognized as some of the finest programs of their kind. More than half The Santa Fe Opera's audience of 85,000 comes from outside New Mexico; they represent every state in the union as well as roughly 30 countries. The Opera has a wide array of education and community outreach programs to make opera accessible and appealing to a broad spectrum of the New Mexico population. The unique Pueblo Opera Program serves Native American youth from nineteen pueblos and three reservations in the state. The Opera has become one of New Mexico's cultural and economic leaders; its impact on New Mexico's economy has been calculated at more than $200 million each year. The opportunity:
