UCSB Associate Professor Isabel Bayrakdarian will direct undergraduate students from UCSB’s Opera Outreach Program in a free community performance of Evan Mack’s 2016 children’s opera Lucinda y las Flores de la Nochebuena on Sunday, December 8, 2019 at 6 pm in Karl Geiringer Hall on the UC Santa Barbara campus. The 45-minute one-act opera is based on the Mexican folk tale of the same name that tells the story of how the poinsettia became a meaningful symbol of the holiday season.
