The list of events that have been canceled or will be canceled because of our changing behaviors related to the coronavirus continues to get longer.

Local arts organizations like Arizona Opera and Ballet Arizona are among those being affected. Arizona Theatre Company announced its final two shows of the season have been canceled and will move to subsequent years.
