About Alicina’s Island: A Picnic Operetta
Handel’s magical opera tours to community gardens and sites of urban agriculture in a colorful re-imagining that brings the epic poem to a roadshide oasis for truckers and travelers. Scheming sorceresses Alicina and Morgana become truck-stop waitresses luring truckers astray. This genre-bending opera will combine Handel’s baroque with the outlaw country music of Merle Haggard and Del Reeves and other country legends – all while serving the audience a five-course sampling menu of locally sourced treats created especially for the performance.
