    The Italian Straw Hat - Open Captioning

    By Nino Rota, libretto by Ernesta Rota. Performed by: Minnesota Opera Brimming with laughs, this uproarious comedy by the composer best known for The Godfather film scores comes to Minnesota Opera for the first time ever. Groom-to-be Fadinard gallops around Paris on his wedding day in search of a straw hat to replace the one his horse has inadvertently eaten. The bright and breezy score perfectly captures the increasingly ridiculous situation that rides on the edge of chaos. After seeing this 1950s madcap romp, you’ll never look at a hat—or a night at the opera—the same way again! Tix: $25-165; Reduced to half-price for AD patrons; Braille, large-print programs and infrared listening systems available at Patron Services in Ordway’s first level lobby. 612-333-6669, tickets@mnopera.org; a free Opera Insights half-hour session is held Sunday at 1:00. Website: www.mnopera.org/visit/accessibility-services/

    7:30 pm - 10:00 pm at Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, 345 Washington St, St Paul, MN 55102, USA
