          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.

Our Next Show

HAIR - The Musical

26, 27 and 28 August 2016

Directed by Lily Vorhies and Katherine Sturt-Scobie

Hair was the first rock musical. The plot background is the hippie counterculture and sexual revolution of the 1960s, and several of the songs became anthems of the anti-Vietnam War peace movement. It addresses issues that are as relevant as ever: drugs, societal attitudes to sexuality and gender and military engagement. Hair tells the story of the "tribe", a group of politically active, long-haired hippies in the "Age of Aquarius" living a bohemian life in New York City and fighting conscription into the Vietnam War. Claude, his good friend Berger, their roommate Sheila and their friends struggle to balance their young lives, loves, and the sexual revolution with their rebellion against the war and their conservative parents and society. Ultimately, Claude must decide whether to resist the draft as his friends have done, or to succumb to the pressures of his parents (and conservative America) to serve in Vietnam, compromising his pacifist principles and risking his life.
