Hello to Opera
Presented by the Opera Guild of Southern Arizona, Say Hello to Opera gives a preview of each Arizona Opera production in the weeks leading up to the performance. Previews typically include historical and musical context on the piece as well as liver performances of musical selections performed by University of Arizona students.
Opera Book Club
There is perhaps no better way to explore an opera than through the stories they are based on, or reading about the creators themselves. At Opera Book Club, we do just that!
Opera & Gelato Film Festival
This collection of opera film screenings is the perfect way to get a summertime opera fix while escaping the Arizona heat. The screenings take place on select Sundays in June, July, and August with frozen treats available to purchase.

Learn more about each opera immediately before the performance. These half-hour talks will enhance your opera experience with contextual information about many facets of the piece, beginning one hour before each performance in the auditorium.
Your chance to meet the performers and have your questions answered, in the auditorium immediately after each matinee performance.
