Arizona Opera League of Tucson

 

Who We Are

For more than 47 years, the Arizona Opera League of Tucson has been a source of significant support for the Arizona Opera and for the cultural and educational enrichment of the Southern Arizona community. In 1973, six Tucson businesswomen known as the “Opera Dames” launched Arizona Opera’s original volunteer and support organization. Brought together by their love of opera, the “Opera Dames” set out to share and encourage others to experience this exquisite art form. Today, the Arizona Opera League of Tucson has evolved into an organization of more than 100 men and women who share a love of opera and who work tirelessly to support our renowned Arizona Opera. Through its exciting programs and fundraising efforts, the League contributes greatly to the success and vitality of the Arizona Opera.

 

What We Do

Serving the Tucson area from Oro Valley to Green Valley, Opera League members enjoy special events, including gourmet dining and cocktail socials, special concerts and themed fundraisers. The League also manages the Shopera at the Opera, our pre-show and intermission gift shop that showcases crafts and jewelry from some of Tucson’s finest local artisans. The proceeds from all of our activities go directly to benefit the magic you see on stage!
