Philemon and Baucis – Planet in Peril: A Picnic Operetta

A new adaptation of Haydn’s rarely performed 1773 marionette opera, featuring the music of Queen!
Returning from space exploration in a far off galaxy, space cadets Jupiter and Mercury return to earth to find humanity decimated by plague. Surviving citizens are cold, suspicious, and hooked on banality. Our gods-in-disguise prowl about town looking for someplace to unveil their gender-bending extravaganza. No one will give these gods a chance but the down-trodden tavern of Philemon and Baucis.
