Friday, October 13, 2017 - 5:00pm (Tucson)

The Arizona Opera League - Tucson will be hosting the 2017 Opera Volunteers International (OVI) Focus Meeting October 13 -15 in Tucson.

Opera Volunteers International is a nonprofit volunteer organization that works to connect individuals and local opera support organizations so that successful ideas and projects are championed. Hosting this event in Tucson gives us a chance to show these operatic ambassadors the great work that happens here in Arizona, including the first offering of our 2017/18 season, Hercules vs Vampires!

See and hear Hercules vs Vampires at the Fox Theater. Listen to composer Patrick Monganelli tell us how he turned a 1961 Italian cult film into an opera. Attend a cocktail party at artist Barbara Rogers’ home. Treat yourself to visits to the Sonora Desert Museum and San Xavier Mission. Finish with dinner at the downtown El Charro Cafe.
