The Santa Fe Opera is known for its brilliant architecture and its long-standing history as New Mexico’s most elegant venue for a large array of amazing operas. This year I was lucky enough to get a seat for their newest show “The (R)Evolution Of Steve Jobs” during their press day performance and capture some photos from the venue and the show. Admittedly I am not the biggest fan of opera — in past shows I’ve found myself rather bored — but this year I found myself leaving the opera and wanting more! For 90 minutes I was caught up in an amazing show about Steve Jobs’ personal — and often never discussed — life with his friend Steve Wazniak and wife Laurene Powell Jobs.
