The society has its own headquarters situated at 10 rue Pré-de-la-Fountaine, Meyrin which brings together all the parts of the society.
The largest rehearsal room complete with a small stage and grand piano is the main area in which the full cast, choral group and orchestra rehearse. It's also an area to host meetings, musical evenings and social events. Lighting, a sound system and projector are all available.
There are also smaller rooms which provide the possibility for principals or soloists to work separately.
The workshop houses set construction, the props store and lighting and sound equipment.
The comfy social area allows the cast to relax when not rehearsing, complete with hot and cold refreshments, mini kitchen and microwave.
The Costume Store
GAOS has an extensive costume archive which we constantly amend and update for shows.

THE PLACE - HOW TO GET THERE
Due to construction work at Satigny Business Park, there is currently no visitor parking available onsite at GAOS HQ. A new multi-level parking garage has opened on Rue du Pré-Bouvier, which is a 3-minute walk from the main entrance to the complex. Parking here costs 1.-/hour.
If you're using GAOS HQ during the day especially, we strongly advise that you do not park alongside the building. Instead, we suggest that you park either in the visitors' parking area (only in bays marked "visiteur"), immediately in front of you when you drive in the main gate, or on the street. Parking is also available in the loading bay at the back of the building for activities at weekends and in the evenings. Please be aware that GAOS is not liable for any fines received for parking in private bays at Satigny Business Park.
