Welcome to GAOS
The Geneva Amateur Operatic Society was created in 1971 by a small group of musical theatre enthusiasts. Since then it has grown hugely in scope and membership, and today includes a substantial non-Anglophone contingent. Productions are in English and are performed entirely by talented amateurs at some of the city’s most exciting venues. They have earned the Society a reputation for shows of a very high calibre.
