By Nino Rota, libretto by Ernesta Rota. Sung in Italian with English translations above the stage.
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!
