Culture Vulture, Aug. 15

Though Juan Siddi’s flamenco company closed its summer season yesterday, there are still many cultural offerings ahead for those of us in town in this second half of August. The Opera, of course, has two more weeks filled with exciting performances and special community events. Of the main stage productions remaining, there are four left of Faust, three of La Boheme, two of The Last Savage and one each of Wozzeck and Griselda. Not to mention the mainstage performance by the Apprentices in opera scenes on the 21st, their performances of opera favorites and show tunes at La Posada on the 17th and the cabaret performance at The Due Return installation at CCA on the 16th.

We are entering the busiest week in Santa Fe –  Indian Market Week .The Allan Houser Compound is always a great place to visit during market week. They have special events during market week at both their downtown gallery location on Lincoln Avnue and at the compound south of town – which, as I often say, is a “must see.”

With August only half over, there is still lots happening at The Santa Fe Art Institute, even before the start of the official fall art season.

The weather has cooled down, kids are going back to school and we have had some rain – it's time to get out for an exciting finish to summer in Santa Fe.
