Every year OGSA presents previews of each of the five productions in the Arizona Opera Company season. The program was started many years ago by one of our founders, Elizabeth Chadwick, who passed away in 2015 at age 93. Our previews are presented in both Tucson and Oro Valley, free of charge and open to all. Each preview is designed to prepare the audience to enjoy the Arizona Opera production to the fullest extent, but the previews are all great shows in themselves. We feature expert narrators and talented student singers from the Opera Program at UA, who are happy to have the opportunity to perform before an appreciative audience.
The complex task of preparing and presenting these events is entrusted to a committee currently consisting of Betty Allen, Mary Casady, Liz Kinslinger, Ellie Starer , Susan Stokes, and Philippe Bodin, chairman.
