August 6 – August 12, 2019
New for 2019, a tour of Santa Fe, New Mexico with opera, theater, music and Southwest food and hospitality. I spent the month of February in Santa Fe checking out the theater scene as well as restaurants, tours, etc. They call it “city different” and I call it “city wonderful.” I can’t wait to return and share all I discovered with you!
Of course Santa Fe is famous for its Opera season and we will attend the opera Pearl Fishers and return to hear the Apprentice Scenes, which I have been told are magnificent. On opera night we will board our private bus that will whisk us to a backstage tour of the opera house and a Buffet dinner (during which we will have a talk about the opera we are about to see). We will also see 4000 Miles by Amy Herzog at New Mexico’s Actor’s Lab and Artistic Director Robert Beneditti and several of the actors in the play will be our guest artists for a morning chat. We will enjoy scrumptious meals (three dinners, one lunch, all breakfasts included on the tour and two optional dinners available) and we will attend one other music/theater/? experience to be announced.
Day time activities will include a food/walking tour of Santa Fe and surrounds plus a day long trip to near-by Taos led by Heritage Inspirations. Our local guide, Audrey Chumley, lives in Santa Fe and will provide local information (gossip?) and assistance.
Our hotel, the beautiful Inn on the Alameda, is a nine minute walk to the center of town, but seemingly far away from the hustle and bustle of the Plaza. We will enjoy a buffet breakfast in the hotel each morning and Happy Hour each afternoon. We will meet guest artists in the mornings and of course, will have free time to visit the shops for which Santa Fe is so famous. So many shops!
The tour is limited to 20 participants so contact me asap if you are interested in including this tour in your calendar of fun for 2019!
