Do we have the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for you!

On Sunday, February 15, beginning at 3:00 pm on Tucson’s SunLink Streetcars—and at 4:00 at The Screening Room at 127 E Congress—the Opera Guild of Southern Arizona has planned a fun, interactive gala benefit for you! (Well, it’s also for all those fantastic opera students the Guild supports at the University of Arizona and Pima College!)

For lovers of Romance, Valentine’s Day, Opera, Streetcars, and Downtown Tucson, this event hits all the marks! Here’s how to join the fun:

  1. Purchase your $25 ticket at, or call 520-825-1563. You will receive by mail a packet containing your ticket, streetcar pass, and instructions/directions for riding and parking.
  2. The day of the event, park in one of Tucson’s free lots (Helen Street, U of A parking garage off Euclid, or at The Mercado).
  3. Use your included SunLink Day Pass to ride Tucson’s new Streetcars as much as you like, all day. You’ll be serenaded by talented young singers from 3:00 to 4:00 pm as you ride.
  4. Arrive at The Screening Room by 4:00 pm and enjoy hors d’oeuvres and a glass of wine as you meet the singers before proceeding to the live Aria Auction.
  5. You set the program by bidding at auction for your favorite arias, sung by amazing guest artists.
