Event description
A new adaptation of Mozart’s opera, La Clemenza di Tito, with high stakes sports drama, natural disasters, and ‘80s new wave music!

About this Event

In this adaptation of Mozart’s opera, a rag-tag group of players is resurrecting a defunct tennis club. But backstabbing, bitterness, and a murderous revenge plot threaten their rise to the top of Rome’s championship match. Will they find redemption before Mount Vesuvius covers them in ash? When can cheaters be forgiven?

All is presented with the Picnic Operetta’s trademark style of playfulness, satire, and hope. Classic arias and duets from Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito soar across the garden alongside new wave and synth-pop hits by Devo, Berlin, Yaz, and Pat Benatar.

Our operatic athletes will serve the audience some fresh edible bites as well.

An edible opera adventure for the whole family, A Picnic Operetta marks its 11-year tradition of celebrating the harvest with a unique blend of music, food, and storytelling. The Clemency of Tito’s Tennis Club: A Picnic Operetta will tour the Twin Cities metro and several locations around the state in 2019.

Produced by Mixed Precipitation, presented by the New York Mills Cultural Center, and sponsored by Perham Health.

This performance will take place outdoors at the New York Mills Sculpture Park. We provide blankets, bug spray, and sunscreen for our audience, but patrons are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and water.

Reservations are free and strongly encouraged. The performance is offered for a suggested donation, $10-$20. Donations are a critical source of funding for The Picnic Operetta and can be made with your reservation or collected at the performance. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
