The Clemency of Tito's Tennis Club: A Picnic Operetta

Sept. 7
2 p.m.
$10-$20 suggested donation.

Mixed Precipitation returns to community gardens in the Twin Cities and beyond for its 11th Picnic Operetta. The series balances classical music with an appreciation for healthy, deliciously prepared, sustainable food, all without ever taking itself too seriously. This year, they are adapting Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito and setting it in the tennis world. There will be sex, scandal, revenge, and redemption as Mixed Precipitation mashes up Mozart’s music with new wave and synth-pop tunes by Devo, Berlin, Yaz, and Pat Benatar. The Clemency of Tito’s Tennis Club will bring Scotty Reynolds and Jacob Miller together to co-direct, along with Gary Ruschman as musical director. At the show, you can enjoy the outdoors and taste cleverly prepared snacks as you enjoy antics, opera, and a live orchestra. Make reservations by calling 1-800-838-3006, or visit mixedprecipitation.org for locations and info.
