TELL US YOUR STORY
Join in the celebration of The Soraya's 10th anniversary by sharing YOUR Soraya Story.
Maybe your story is about the friends you've gathered with at our performances, or maybe it's the pride you take in knowing the gift you gave us helped The Soraya thrive over the past ten years. Maybe it's a stunning photo you took on the steps of the grand stairecase, or the awe you felt approaching the beauty of The Soraya's architecture. The Soraya's story is YOUR story to tell. From the goose-pimples you've felt during the spectacle live performance, to the connection we share as human beings discovering new cultures and recognizing our own. The story of The Soraya is told by its community.
