This brilliant and (as always) fast-paced and thoroughly whacky Marx Brothers vehicle -- written by George S. Kaufman and Morrie Riskin after a story by James Kevin McGuiness -- gives literary (if not literal) proof to the adage that in the case of opera life emulates art. Love! Revenge! Betrayal! Knock-outs! Fabulous music! And gags galore!
Don't miss "the sanity clause"! Savor the stateroom scene! Root for Ricardo and Rosa! And thank our lucky stars for Groucho, Chico and Harpo!
