The Marx Brothers take on high society. Two lovers who are both in opera are prevented from being together by the man's lack of acceptance as an operatic tenor. Pulling several typical Marx Brothers' stunts, they arrange for the normal tenor to be absent so that the young lover can get his chance.

"'A Night at the Opera' was the Marx Brothers' first film for MGM and it took a more lavish approach than their Paramount work. At the recommendation of producer Irving Thalberg, the brothers toned down their anarchic approach in which anyone and anything was fair game and switched to a more sympathetic, if arguably less thrilling, style in which they aimed their attacks only at the villainous or pompous, acting as helpers to the central romantic couple. A romance between two attractive but thoro"

"August 31 "I saw Mrs. Claypool first. Of course, her mother really saw her first but there's no point in bringing the Civil War into this."
