Hilarious hijinx are all aboard the Orient Express in a James Robinson staging called "a winner" by The Washington Post. Belmonte and his servant Pedrillo set out to rescue their lovers, Konstanze and Blonde, who are held hostage on a train bound from Istanbul to Paris. Mozart's comic genius shines throughout this vaudeville from the Age of the Enlightenment, last seen on The Minnesota Opera stage in 1979. The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Andrew Altenbach, joins The Minnesota Opera for this glamorous ride.
