Santa Fe

The performing arts scene in Santa Fe blossoms in summer when the calendar fills with classical and jazz performances, Shakespeare productions at various venues, experimental theater at Santa Fe Playhouse, and nearly 80 free concerts on the Plaza…. "Too many choices!" is the biggest complaint. The rest of the year things quiet down a bit, but several notable performing-arts groups are prolific from fall through spring, including Performance Santa Fe, Santa Fe Pro Musica, Santa Fe Symphony, and fantastic flamenco performances. The "Pasatiempo" section of the Santa Fe New Mexican's Friday edition, which is also distributed as a free stand-alone in newspaper stands around town, or the Santa Fe Reporter, released on Wednesday, are great sources for current happenings.
