Arizona Opera Company - Tucson Convention Center Music Hall

Arizona Opera has been presenting grand opera since 1972. Productions each season feature internationally renouned singers and conductors.

Arizona Opera has its roots in 1971 Tucson, where it was founded by a dedicated group of opera enthusiasts. Drawing on a mix of local and regional talent, the company's inaugural season featured exciting performances at the Tucson Convention Center Music Hall.

In just a few short years, the company grew to a three-opera season encompassing nine performances. It was only a matter of time before the show hit the road. By 1975, Arizona Opera was performing regularly in Phoenix as well and by 1977, it was maintaining fully-staffed offices in both cities.

With each year, the company stretched a little further, adding performances and educational outreach programs to meet the community's growing demand.

Arizona Opera currently produces a five opera season, with three performance dates in Tucson at the TCC Music Hall and four performances at Symphony Hall in Phoenix. Over the past five years, the artistic quality of the Opera has grown by leaps and bounds. During the 2000-2001 season, the opera appointed its first Principal Conductor and formed the Arizona Opera Orchestra, made up of professional, Arizona-based musicians. The Opera Chorus also relies upon young regional talent, and Arizona Opera's principal talent continues to be engaged from all over the country and often, from around the world.

Arizona Opera's subscriber base of over 10,000 is divided among its Phoenix and Tucson communities. Over the past five years, the company's annual budget has grown to $5.5 million dollars, an increase of over 78%.

Tucson's largest performance venue is the Tucson Convention Center Music Hall, the Arizona Opera Company home at 260 South Church Avenue. The season runs October through March with performances Friday through Sunday matinee performances.
