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.
Based on James A. Michener's prize-winning book, South Pacific is a Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein masterpiece that contains many of their best-loved songs. GAOS is proud to bring this musical to the Geneva stage, complete with orchestra.

GAOS HAS A HOME!!!
A dream come true
After many years of the vagabond life, GAOS has at long last taken possession of its own rehearsal and technical premises. But this is only the beginning! In the coming weeks and months, we'll be asking for all your help to get our new space up and running, and for donations to help us fit into our new home!
