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.

Improv Workshop

Info evening 19 January 2017

Fresh from treading the boards of Puss in Boots, Dame Hettie Quette (Larry Wagner), assisted by Lord Roger (Daire O’Doherty) and Nosmo (Viki Lazar), will be running a series of improvisation workshops in 2017. An information evening will be held on Thursday, 19 January 2017 at 20h, at a venue to be confirmed.

The information evening will describe what's being offered, and the content, frequency and duration of the workshop sessions will be decided by those who decide to sign up.

Participation in the workshop is open to all GAOS members (minimum 12 years of age) and could involve rehearsing over a couple of weekends. It may culminate with a performance for GAOS members before the Easter holidays.
