A Website I Like: Santa Fe Opera

           The website i decided to do was the Santa Fe Opera website. I decided to apply for jobs in various Opera houses for this summer and this is one of the programs I wanted to work for. Over all the website looks very appealing, the pages have great stage shots of many of the past performances. The description of what the program is displayed on each page and is easily assessable.
the front page is nice and interactive, if you want a general idea of what the opera company entails, then it is pretty self explanatory.
          I really like the color scheme the website chooses. The deep red represents the rich culture involved in the company and it also represents the deep red dust that can be found in New Mexico, there the opera house is located. i like how a lot of the pictures are links to further information, making it nice and interactive visually. the pictures, when clicked give you more information about what is going on in the picture and even more information about other events that you might be interested in.  
          The one thing that was frustrating was it isn't too clear about how to get to the specific information needed to become employed with the opera company. to apply you have to find and print out the application, there is no other way to apply. the link to link navigation that is needed to get the application isn't seen without going through a few pages of mass text that doesn't really have to do with employment. It could be more clear on where to get there forms, it would be best if they were all int he same section instead of having to go through the different departments websites for each application and form. the employment form is in a completely different set of pages then the reference form, but you need both in order to apply for the company.
