This weekend we’ll be at the Columbus Community Garden (33rd and Columbus in South Minneapolis) and the Celeste’s Dream Community Garden on the grounds of the Sisters of St. Joseph Carondelet (next to St. Kate’s at Randolph and Howell in St. Paul)… see the side bar for a map!

So far our audience has had great things to say about our show!

Here are few testimonials!

“It felt adventurous and communal… I’m too busy thinking about all I just saw and heard and tasted to think of anything else, thank you!”

“I don’t live here, but I’d make the trip from Missouri to see another!”

“This was an incredible melange of the senses.”

“You brought opera down to earth and to life for me.  I loved it.  AND you introduced me to a new part of the city and a new venue for theatre.”

“I thought it integrated music, community and local food beautifully.  I was completely engrossed by the performances, as was my 5 year old daughter.”

“I felt like a perfect to experience opera this way.  The Beauty of the voice couple with the beauty of the sensed we engaged.”

“It is unique to have audience members experience the story in a way that pushes our expectations and including in the story itself.”

We’d like to again extend thanks to our Chef Nick Schneider of Cafe Brenda.  This weekend we’ll have the talents of a new chef, Phil Werst of Common Roots Cafe! Both of these gents are avid gardeners, event planners and experts in local cuisine. We used linen and tablecloths as well as chair covers for our wedding, if you want to invest in your next event we recommend to visit
