Summary A comic masterpiece in which Groucho's hilarious business schemes bring Milan's finest opera stars to New York, with some unexpected stowaways on board - Harpo and Chico. Groucho attaches himself to a wealthy dowager, patron of the grand opera, mainly for the purpose of chiseling a slice off her bankroll. Eventually, he appoints himself manager and Cupid's aid to Rosa (Kitty Carlisle), a beautiful prima donna and Ricardo (Allan Jones), an unknown singer in the opera company.
