1) Bel Canto: Contemporary Artists Explore Opera
Running through September 1, this new exhibit pages homage to the famed Sante Fe Opera by inviting contemporary artists to examine themes of race, gender & class within the stories, tradition, architecture and music of opera. Both sumptuous and revealing, this is a big and deep curation.
