Santa Fe Opera got its start somewhat inauspiciously, its starting point was a pinto bean farm.  But when John Crosby took over the property in 1956, the Opera was born., due in part to the excellence of the acoustics in the natural “sonic bowl” on the property  Sixty two years later, the Santa Fe Opera is world-reknowned, attracting performers, musicians and audiences from all over the globe.  General Director Charles MacKay speaks with us about the upcoming season, which starts tonight  (Friday ) with a production of  Leonard Berstein’s Candide.
