A new bilingual opera by Evan Mack and Joshua McGuire

Based on the popular Mexican folk tale, Lucinda y las Flores de la Nochebuena tells the story of how the poinsettia became a meaningful flower of the holiday season. This new opera unfolds as young Lucinda and her mother make a blanket together to give as a Christmas gift, but Lucinda's mother grows very ill and they do not finish in time for the Christmas Eve celebration. As Lucinda finds  the strength to attend the celebration alone, with just wildflowers to share, a holiday miracle teachers her that giving from the heart is more important than the gift itself.

For families with children ages 5-10. Group tickets for schools are also available: Apply here.
