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
