St. Paul has a lively performing arts scene. The St. Paul Chamber Orchestra is world renown. The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, where the chamber orchestra often performs, is also the venue for Broadway shows, musical events, theatrical productions and the Minnesota Opera. The XCel Energy Center, home to the Minnesota Wild hockey team, hosts rock concerts and other musical events (the Three Tenors have sung here). Here are some Web sites:
