The legendary Marx Brothers take a hilarious, musical swipe atself-importance, pomposity and insensitivity, that crescendos with amanic on-stage performance, A Night at the Opera.Milan. Seedy promoterOtis B. Driftwood (Groucho Marx) guarantees patroness (Margaret Dumont)a position in high society if she bankrolls an opera. The plan hinges onsigning egotistical tenor Rodolfo Lassparri (Walter Woolf King), butDriftwood meets his match in talent manager Fiorello (Chico Marx), whorepresents "the world's greatest tenor" -- actually the more-deserving,but unknown Ricardo Baroni (Allan Jones), who's also in love with theopera's soprano, Rosa (Kitty Carlisle). When Driftwood's deal fallsthrough, the promoter, his patroness, tenors, soprano and many more mustmake a madcap Atlantic steamship crossing.

Absolutely one of the most hilarious movies ever made, this classic farce featuring the outrageous genius of the Marx Brothers is a chance to see some of their best bits woven together seamlessly in a story of high society, matchmaking, and chaos. In order to bring two young lovers together, brothers Groucho, Chico, and Harpo must sabotage an opera performance even as they try to pass themselves off as stuffed shirts. Featuring the classic sequence where Groucho piles as many people as possible into a ship's stateroom, A Night at the Opera is a deliciously zany romp worth watching again and again. --Robert Lane
