Prescott Friends of Arizona Opera

Who We Are

Arizona Opera’s goal to be a statewide opera company took a significant step forward in 2011 with the creation of the Prescott Friends of Arizona Opera. Although Prescott is ninety miles north of Phoenix, the group has found ways to overcome the distance and to present professional opera performances in Prescott.

Membership to the league offers unique access to both league parties and Arizona Opera events throughout each season, offering the opportunity to hear professional opera singers in an intimate setting and to enjoy the company of fellow opera lovers.

What We Do

Twice each season, mainstage singers from Arizona Opera come to Prescott to perform in intimate settings at our Salon opera parties. With refreshments and food, patrons have the unique opportunity to meet with the performers and fellow opera devotees to talk with them about all things operatic.

The Prescott Friends also present various other programs during the season, including concerts in local theaters, receptions and dinners and bus trips to attend performances in Phoenix. Recently, Prescott Friends held an event with local talent, as a "thank you" to our members.


Prescott Opera Lovers Go to Phoenix

Each season, the Prescott Friends and Yavapai Symphony Association sponsor bus trips to Arizona Opera’s Sunday matinee performances in Phoenix. Discounted tickets and luxury bus fare are included in the all-on-one price! We arrive in Phoenix in time to have lunch or to attend the pre-performance lecture. The bus drops off and picks up at the theater door. We enjoy the performance and are home to Prescott by early evening! Check out some of the special events we have planned this season!
