Theater of New Mexico


City in New Mexico
City in New Mexico

Spanish missionaries carried European theater traditions with them to New Mexico, where they merged with the Native Americans’ rich heritage of ceremony. This legacy continues in the state, with active community theaters operating in many locations. The Santa Fe Community Theater has performed since 1918, and the Albuquerque Little Theater was founded in the 1920s. Other theaters in the two cities specialize in musicals, contemporary, or experimental works. The Santa Fe Opera performs in an outdoor theater in July and August. The New Mexico Symphony Orchestra, based in Albuquerque, was organized in the 1930s, and professional or semiprofessional orchestras are active in Roswell, Farmington, Las Cruces, Portales, and Santa Fe. The Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival began in 1973 and has inspired similar festivals in Taos and Angel Fire.

The first newspaper in New Mexico was El Crepúsculo de la Libertad (“The Dawn of Liberty”), issued in Santa Fe in 1834. In 1847 the Santa Fe Republican began publication, printing two pages in Spanish and two in English. In 2002 there were 15 daily newspapers. The Albuquerque Journal, the Albuquerque Tribune, the Las Cruces Sun-News,and the Santa Fe New Mexican have the largest circulations of the daily newspapers.

The first radio station licensed in the state, KOB in Albuquerque, began operation in 1922. KOB-TV in Albuquerque, New Mexico’s first commercial television station, began broadcasting in 1948. In 2002 New Mexico had 40 AM and 65 FM radio stations and 18 television stations. "New Mexico" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
