Arizona Opera League of Tucson
Who We Are
Founded in 1973, the Arizona Opera League of Tucson is Arizona Opera’s original volunteer and support organization. Formed by six Tucson business women known as the “Opera Dames,” who started a tradition of supporting great opera in Arizona. The “Opera Dames” gathered tremendous support, and in 1978 the opera company expanded into Phoenix and officially changed its name to the Arizona Opera and the “Dames” reinvented themselves as the Arizona Opera League of Tucson.
