We’re excited for the Santa Fe Opera Apprentice performance at House of Eternal Return.
Music is a fundamental part of Santa Fe and what it has to offer. Not that music doesn’t take a central role in the lives of everyone: it joins us in the car as we go to work or speed toward other doings and joins at dinner with friends. Music has a large role in the story of Meow Wolf’s House of Eternal Return. Music too, is the driving force of opera (of course!), and Santa Fe is a natal site of the worldwide opera scene.
With the Santa Fe Opera’s selection of new and radical operas this summer, like the highly anticipated The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, their apprentice performers are looking to to explore the uncharted also. It is in this spirit that they will enter Meow Wolf’s House of Eternal Return on August, July 27.
For their performance three apprentice singers will enter House of Eternal Return and wander throughout the space, performing pieces exclusive to the evening’s fare. The three will then converge in Meow Wolf’s venue space located within the exhibit for a group performance.
The apprentices will be enacting their take on Meow Wolf’s Summer in the Multiverse — Summer in the Multiverse is a season long event of performance, song, interactivity and intrigue.
This radical performance, which wanders in space allowing the audience to discover song and performance, is paired with House of Eternal Returns surreal background. Imagine wandering into the forest of Arden to accompany Shakespeare’s seedlings and fairies and dazed gods and godlets as they enact their story of discovery and magic. Now you’ve imagined something similar to the experience that awaits you on this one-of-a-kind evening of performance, atmosphere and song.
The Santa Fe Opera’s Apprentice Program for Singers is internationally recognized as one of the finest programs of its type. On average each year approximately 40 apprentice singers are chosen from a competitive applicant pool. An apprenticeship at “America’s premier summer opera festival” offers unmatched opportunities for professional experience and international exposure.
