RSVPs strongly encouraged
Suggested Donation $10 to $20 per person
Running time:  aprox.  1 hour and 15 minutes.

A punk retelling of Henry Purcell’s 1684 English Baroque opera. Now in its sixth season, this edible opera adventure for the whole family plays in community gardens and urban farms throughout the Twin Cities.

King Arthur has gathered the elite Knights of the Round Table together to celebrate the expansion of their benevolent empire, Cameloteapolis. They’re cutting the ribbons to celebrate the building of a colossal sporting arena to host a “Super Joust,” but their grand vision faces a brand new threat — a bull-headed generation of young Saxon knights determined to destroy their new creation. Saddled by debt and underemployment, the Saxons have enlisted the “black magic” of the underworld. Will they use their magic to bring new prosperity or athletic success? And who will be king?
