Intermezzo Star Gazing Party: A Fusion of Art and Nature

How many stars have been discovered at The Santa Fe Opera? Come count them yourself at Intermezzo's Fall Star Gazing Party. Enjoy an evening with Intermezzo of The Santa Fe Opera observing some of nature’s most beautiful celestial creations with noted astrophotographer Peter Lipscomb on the Opera grounds, Thursday, September 20th at 7:30 pm.

Lipscomb, operator of Astronomy Adventures and Director of the Night Sky Program for the New Mexico Heritage Preservation Alliance will be on hand with two telescopes to guide guests through the night sky.

In addition, the Santa Fe Opera's Randy Lutz will explain the Opera’s wetlands system, its integration with the surrounding vegetation and speak to light pollution issues that helped determine the Opera's site choice.

In keeping with the spirit of ecologically sound practices, Crawford Malone will enhance the evening with fine wines from Wente, the oldest continuously owned and operated family winery in California. The winery is known for practicing sustainable agriculture and is a paradigm for good ecological practices in wine-making. Other event sponsors include Jinja providing hors d'oeuvres, fine chocolates from The ChocolateSmith and coffee from Starbucks.

Join us in this celebration of nature at The Santa Fe Opera, as IZO "Goes Green."
