Children’s Opera ‘Lucinda’ now online; airs TV Christmas weekend

Fresno State Children’s Opera, “Lucinda y las Flores de la Nochebuena,” which just completed a month-long run, is now available for viewing online at the Community Media Access Collaborative (CMAC) website and will be broadcast on Comcast Channel 93 and AT&T Channel 99 at 6 p.m. Friday and Sunday, Dec. 23 and 25 and at 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 24. In addition to several area K-12 schools, the four-member Fresno State student cast performed live at the Woodward Park Regional Library and at the Square at Campus Pointe. The 45-minute production, directed by Dr. Anthony Radford, Fresno State music professor, is based on a Mexican folktale about the spirit of giving at Christmastime and the use of poinsettias for the holiday. The broadcast version, a joint effort by the Department of Media, Communications and Journalism and CMAC, was produced by Fresno State professor Candace Egan and her multimedia production studio practicum students.
