Enjoy Out-Of-This-World Experience At Outdoor Performance Of Opera On The Rocks At Bandelier


Take a trip into space and dress the part this fall in Los Alamos. Back for its sixth year, the highly anticipated Opera on the Rocks at Bandelier National Monument will take the audience on an extraordinary galactic trip this year, with the presentation of scenes from Mozart’s comic opera, The Abduction from the Seraglio, adapted to fit into a futuristic universe similar to that of Star Trek. To add to the fun, attendees are encouraged to dress in their best Trekkie gear.

Presented by the Los Alamos Opera Guild of the Guilds of the Santa Fe Opera, Inc., Opera on the Rocks will take place on September 30th at the scenic amphitheater at Bandelier’s Juniper Campground, and the performance coincides with the celebration of National Public Lands Day.

“Opera on the Rocks is always a unique and special event, and this year’s performance is sure to be second-to-none,” said Kelly Stewart, Marketing Manager for Los Alamos County. “Infusing the elements of modern-day space entertainment with classic Mozart is a brilliant move that will entertain viewers of all ages. Plus, the relaxed, outdoor venue, surrounded by the fall foliage and majestic rocks of Bandelier National Monument, makes it a truly extraordinary event for the whole family, tying the natural scenic beauty of Los Alamos with world-class entertainment. For anyone looking to take a fall vacation, we recommend visiting Los Alamos and attending Opera on the Rocks.”

Shuttle buses are available to bring attendees from both Los Alamos Sullivan Field & White Rock Visitors Center to the Bandelier amphitheater in the park’s Juniper Campground at 3:30pm on Saturday, September 30th. Shuttles will return around 7:30pm. Food and drinks will be available for purchase at the amphitheater, and there will be craft activities and snacks provided for children.

Tickets are now available for purchase at www.guildsofsfo.org/LA. The event benefits The Santa Fe Opera Education and Community Programs and the Friends of Bandelier.
