Opera on the Rocks - Opera at Bandelier 

LA - Opera Rocks


The Los Alamos Opera Guild of the Guilds of The Santa Fe Opera, Inc., Opera Alta, Bandelier National Monument, Friends of Bandelier, Los Alamos Atomic City Transit, Los Alamos Commerce Development Corporation, Don Quixote Distillery & Winery, and Black Mesa Winery present Opera on the Rocks - Opera at Bandelier.

This second annual event is an opportunity for those not familiar with opera to participate in an introductory experience, as well as for opera aficionados to enjoy listening in a special venue.  The performance will be held in the evening, as the sun sets, at the Monument's amphitheater. Those camping at the Juniper Campground may attend with no additional cost beyond the regular Bandelier fees - no opera ticket or reservation is required. Please bring your blankets and come enjoy an evening of fellowship and live music under the stars.

Due to capacity issues, all attendees must utilize the free shuttle service from either the White Rock Visitor Center in White Rock, or Sullivan Field in Los Alamos.  Shuttles will depart at 5PM for the Opera at Bandelier.

The event begins at the shuttle pickup locations, where the Atomic City Transit will transport guests at 5 PM to Bandelier.  Upon arrival at the Bandelier Amphitheater, guests can participate in a complimentary wine tasting hosted by the Don Quixote Distillery & Winery and Black Mesa Winery; glasses and bottles and food will be available for purchase.  At 6:15, the performance begins - a production of Menotti's, Amahl and the Night Visitors by Opera Alta coordinated by Alicia Solomon will be presented.

In the event of rain, Opera on the Rocks will be rescheduled for Sunday, September 22.


Online pre-pay registration is closed.
