Opera founder subject of new book

-A A +A

Lecture > Santa Fe author Craig Smith to talk at Authors Speak Series today

The life of John Crosby, founder and animating spirit of the Santa Fe Opera, is a fascinating one.
In the book “A Vision of Voices,” author and music critic Craig Smith has written an in-depth portrait of that visionary man. The Authors Speak Series will feature Smith talking about his work at 7 p.m. today in the Upstairs Rotunda at Mesa Public Library.
The timing for Smith’s talk could not be better with the start of the 2015 Santa Fe Opera which runs July 3-Aug. 29, and features the operas “Daughter of the Regiment,” “Salome,” “La Finta Giardiniere,” “Rigoletto” and the world premiere of “Cold Mountain.”
Smith is a freelance writer who spent more than 20 years as an arts critic for The Santa Fe New Mexican. Smith’s knowledge of both music and the music scene in Santa Fe brings a unique richness to his writing. The book is generously illustrated with photographs showing Crosby rubbing elbows with the rich, the famous, and the soon-to-be famous. Smith writes knowingly about the artists, Crosby’s idea of creating the opera apprentice program, and the operas Crosby loved.
