Sante Fe Opera
|"We're here to be ambassadors of opera. Exposing people to opera is what the Santa Fe Opera's Spring Opera Tour is all about." - Kirt Pavitt, music director and pianist|
|About the Santa Fe Opera|
The Santa Fe Opera's Apprentice Program for Singers has been helping young singers establish their careers since Santa Fe Opera founder John Crosby
created the program as part of the Opera's debut season in 1957. James Morris, Samuel Ramey, Franco Farina, and Neil Shicoff are among early
apprentices. More recent alumni, such as Celena Shafer, Michelle de Young, Beth Clayton, William Burden, Kurt Streit, and Joyce DiDonato, are now
enjoying international careers.
We strive to enrich the Texas Tech University academic and cultural experience by bringing leading scholars and artists together
with our own distinguished faculty, students and staff to exchange expertise, research, and talents.
