Santa Fe Opera Offers Deal to Subscribers

The Santa Fe Opera is offering 2009 season subscribers a chance to save.

People who by tickets for the whole season can get a 25 percent discount off the purchase of two additional tickets for four of this summer’s operas, through Feb. 27.

A letter the opera has sent to subscribers urges them to use the coupons “to purchase extra tickets for your own use, to bring friends on your performance evenings, or to give to others to encourage them to attend Santa Fe Opera performances.”

The offer applies to Mozart’s Don Giovanni, Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love, Gluck’s Alceste, and the world premiere of Paul Moravec and Terry Teachout’s The Letter, starring soprano Patricia Racette. Verdi’s La traviata, with international favorite Natalie Dessay in the title role, is not part of the offer.
