The opera house in Santa Fe, New Mexico, is one of the most beautiful opera houses in the United States.It is small and open, with one roof over the stage where singers perform and another roof over part of the audience.This opera house in the mountain is one of the best opera houses in the country, which may seem surprising because performances are only given during seven weeks in the summer, and because Santa Fe is a very small city.
One reason why the Santa Fe Opera is so good is that it attracts many excellent young singers.They all hope to sing in famous opera houses like Metropolitan in New York someday, and they work hard to become well－known during the summer.The musicians and directors are experts who come from the best orchestras (管弦乐队) and operas in the country during their vacations.They enjoy working there because they like to live in Santa Fe, which is near both the mountains and the desert.It is very beautiful there in summer.
The state government of New Mexico advertises the Santa Fe Opera in newspapers all over the country, and a great many tourists come to New Mexico because of the opera.Still, most of the audience do come from Santa Fe and other nearby cities, and all the seats in the theater are sold for every show.
There is only one thing that some people do not like about the Santa Fe Opera, and that is the cold weather.Because the theater is open, performances cannot start before it gets dark at nine o'clock in the evening, and then the mountain air becomes very cool.Sometimes people complain about the cold air, but because the operas are good, these people come back again wearing warm coats.

D．they like the scenery there
解析 细节理解题。根据文章第二段第二句“They all hope to sing in famous opera houses like Metropolitan in New York someday, and they work hard to become well－known during the summer.”可知年轻的音乐家们选择在圣菲歌剧院演出是为了出名。

解析 推理判断题。根据文章最后一句“Sometimes people complain about the cold air...”可知人们只是有时会抱怨天气冷，并不是终年都冷，故A项错误。而根据文章第一段第二句“...with one roof over the stage where singers perform and another roof over part of the audience.”可知该剧院演出场地有屋顶，而观众席只有部分屋顶。文章最后一段前两句“There is only one thing that some people do not like about the Santa Fe Opera, and that is the cold weather.Because the theater is open...”又说人们不喜欢该剧院的唯一一点就是寒冷，因为剧院是露天的，故选B。
