The 2020-2021 Season

Performance Santa Fe’s 2020-2021 season runs from July 19, 2020 through June 12, 2021 and features 29 performances of music, dance, and theater at seven venues across Santa Fe, including a return to the Santa Fe Opera after nearly a decade away and the organization’s first time presenting at Museum Hill’s Milner Plaza. This marks a significant increase in the amount of performances and venues that the non-profit organization has offered from past seasons, which reached a high of 18 events at 4 venues during its 2019-2020 season.

More diversity of genres is also represented this season with offerings of chamber, classical, and jazz music, as well as dance, theater, and special engagements. Highlights include some of the world’s most renowned performers like Joyce DiDonato, Vijay Iyer, and Pinchas Zukerman, along with several new and sensational surprises like Piaf! The Show and global cabaret phenomenon Meow Meow. 

Performance Santa Fe’s notable increase in offerings during its 2020-2021 season is a reflection of Executive + Artistic Director Chad Hilligus’s artistic goals. “My vision is more,” says Hilligus. “More variety, more diversity, more performances, and more venues, while maintaining the highest level of artistic excellence. We want to offer something for everyone throughout the year.”

In line with this vision of more, Performance Santa Fe’s 84th season also sees an increase in collaborations with other arts organizations, including co-presentations with The Santa Fe Symphony and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum.

“This is an exciting time for the arts community in Santa Fe and I’m proud to be a part of a group of young arts leaders who share a spirit of collaboration and the belief that we can accomplish more together,” Hilligus says. “Daniel Crupi, Cody Hartley, and I all feel strongly about finding creative ways to connect the visual and performing arts and that our audiences will benefit from this kind of cultural innovation.”

With more offerings than ever before, Performance Santa Fe’s 2020-2021 season promises to be its best yet while setting a new standard for future programming.
