Geneva Amateur Operatic Society 

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.

The controversial rock musical Hair challenged many of the norms held by Western society in the 1960s. At that time, young people in America protested against what they saw as wrong with their country: racism, environmental destruction, poverty, sexism and sexual repression, violence at home, the war in Vietnam, depersonalization and corruption in politics. Hair tells the story of a tribe of politically active, long-haired hippies living a bohemian lifestyle in New York. The struggle to balance the rebellion of their young pacifist lives with the pressures of conservative society. They believe that they are the true patriots, the ones who genuinely want to save their country and restore its glory - a return to natural things and simpler times. The show has numerous vivacious songs that celebrate the unadulterated joy and anguish of youth, including "Aquarius" and "Let the Sun Shine In".

Hair is not suitable for young children.
