A Holiday-Inspired Children’s Opera
Based on the popular Mexican folk tale of the first poinsettia, young Lucinda and her mother make a blanket together. They plan to give it as a gift at a Christmas Eve celebration, but Lucinda’s mother grows very sick, and they cannot finish it in time. As Lucinda finds the strength to attend the celebration alone with only wildflowers to share, a holiday miracle teaches her that giving from the heart is more important than the gift itself.
This lively, interactive and heartwarming children’s opera about perseverance, transformation, and a holiday miracle will set your season aglow!
Presented by Opera Birmingham and Samford Opera. Sung in English.
