Geneva Amateur Operatic Society


Geneva Amateur Operatic Society

The Geneva Amateur Operatic Society (GAOS) is a large English-speaking operatic music society based in Geneva. Founded in 1971, the productions are mostly in English and the society performs a traditional English pantomime each winter. However, membership hails from many countries. Although an amateur group, some of the members have played in the professional theatre, which helps to present a high level of performance in singing, dancing and acting. GAOS puts on three major stage productions each year at theatres in and around Geneva. GAOS is a non-profit making society and its members receive no payment.
