Ordway Center for the Performing Arts
When you mention the beautiful Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, more
and more people across the country think Saint Paul. Ordway Center is a
major reason why Arthur Frommer wrote that Saint Paul and its twin,
Minneapolis, rank among the cultural capitals of the nation.
Ordway Center is the crown jewel in Saint Paul's cultural treasure chest. Its
beauty, acoustical splendor and programs have won praise from both
national and international critics and it is considered one of the world's finest
showcases for the arts.
The Ordway experience starts with the liveried footmen who greet theater-
goers at the lobby entrance and continues up the sweeping spiral staircase to the Grand Foyer and upper
Promenade, both with spectacular views of the city.
Ordway Center is home to the Minnesota Opera Company, the Schubert Club, one of the country's oldest
musical organizations; and the world renowned Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. Ordway Center has brought
the best of Broadway to the Twin Cities including Chicago, Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Rent,
Spamalot, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and many more. Visiting artists frequently perform in the 1,800-seat Main
Hall while the 315-seat studio theater offers ongoing comedies, musicals and ethnic performances that delight
all ages. Whatever you choose to attend, your Ordway experience is one you won't soon forget
