The Santa Fe Opera and University of New Mexico School of Fine Arts have embarked on a joint production of a new children’s opera. The work will be performed in late 2011 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque and the Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe.
The American composer Stephen Paulus is writing the opera, based on the children’s story, “Shoes for Santo Niño,” by Peggy Pond Church. Andrea Fellows Walters, the Opera Director of Education and Outreach, is the librettist.
“This partnership is a milestone for the College of Fine Arts,” said Fine Arts Dean James Linnell. “Involvement with The Santa Fe Opera on a major project will open a rich opportunity for learning and experience by bringing our artistic and producing personnel into a real, collaborative process to create an original work.”
The opera was commissioned by UNM to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the UNM Chorus. It also honors, in 2012, the Centenary of New Mexico’s statehood.
