Theater & Performing Arts
In Minnesota, we know a little bit about the arts. Touring Broadway shows and locally produced plays grace Minnesota's 400-plus stages almost every night. Award-winning orchestras, choirs and dance troupes entertain audiences of all ages. With the Guthrie Theater, Minnesota Orchestra, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and more, Minneapolis-St. Paul, in particular, has gained a reputation as a premier arts center. And we're known to show our appreciation with a standing ovation at each opportunity.
