Santa Fe Opera Youth Night

Cheap tickets for you and your wee ones

This summer’s final Youth Night at the Opera is Tuesday, July 19.

For deeply discounted ticket prices, families with children or young adults can attend a fully staged and costumed rehearsal of Gian Carlo Menotti’s The Last Savage. These dress rehearsals will be accompanied by the full orchestra.

The social satire follows Kitty, a young college anthropologist, as she searches for and captures the last savage. Kitty plans on taking the savage back to New York City and donating him to the zoo. When they fall in love and try to live in ’60s suburbia, they discover that perhaps it’s more challenging than life in the jungle.

A half-hour, interactive lecture on music called “3-2-1 Opera!” will start at

8 p.m. The Last Savage performance is at 9 p.m.

Tickets for Youth Nights are sold in packages. Prices:

One adult and two children, $32

Two adults and three children, $56

Each additional child, as well as young adults (ages 15-22), $8

Young adults may purchase individual tickets on their own. Children must be at least 6 years old to attend.

The Santa Fe Opera is also offering free bus service from Albuquerque and Taos. For information and reservations, call the Albuquerque Guild of The Santa Fe Opera at 505-792-6869, ext. 103, or email specialevents@abqoperaguild.org

Dream It, Draw It, Do It!

Week-long art summer camp for kids

Emmy-winning cartoonist Mark Kistler teaches a week-long art camp for kids on cartooning and three-dimensional drawing. A proponent of art in schools, Kistler believes that drawing pictures and creating the stories to go with them stimulates the imagination and can help connect the right and left brain. This can lead to better critical thinking and more creativity.

Kistler had two shows on public TV,The Secret City and Mark Kistler’s The Imagination Station, and he has written nine books. His workshops dive into a new theme daily, such as dinosaurs and underwater adventures. Classes are catered to specific age groups, so your lil’ tiger will be with his or her contemporaries.

Classes take place July 18 through 22, at the Christ Lutheran Church and School (7701 Candelaria Road NE)

The summer art camp offers five sessions per day, lasting 60 minutes each. The 5th program, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., is for the entire family and friends. One session daily for one week is $89 per child. $69 for each additional sibling.
