Secret and Scenic: Los Alamos and the Opera
August 20, 2019
Purchase Tickets ($200 per person)

The Los Alamos Opera Guild, in partnership with the Los Alamos Historical Society, the Friends Group of the Manhattan Project National Historical Park, and the Bradbury Science Museum Association, invites opera enthusiasts from Santa Fe to enjoy a special evening of history, delicious food, and entertaining surprises in Los Alamos for the “Secret and Scenic: Los Alamos and the Opera” Enrico Fermi Night on August 20. A coach will pick up participants from the parking lot at the Santa Fe Opera at 3:00 PM. Let the beautiful vistas of northern New Mexico enchant as a professional tour guide provides a narrative for the group on the drive to Los Alamos, a site of world-changing history and science.

Upon arrival in Los Alamos, guides will lead quick visits to the Los Alamos History Museum, the visitor center for the Manhattan Project National Historical Park, and the Bradbury Science Museum. That will be followed by a wonderful dinner in historic Fuller Lodge, an iconic dining hall originally built for the prestigious Los Alamos Ranch School and later used during the Manhattan Project. A special guest historian will greet you and share more of the legacy of Nobel Prize-winning hysicist Enrico Fermi and the Manhattan Project, as well as Los Alamos connections to the world-famous Santa Fe Opera.

Guests will take the bus back to Santa Fe in order to arrive in time for the performance of La bohème. Guests who wish to attend the opera need to purchase tickets separately. Only 52 tickets are available, so get yours today. For more information, please email Josephine Romero.
