This 45-minute bilingual opera is perfect for the entire family, centered on the Mexican legend of the poinsettia and its significance to the holiday season. A cast of Coker music area students will be joined by a chorus of students from the Hartsville Middle School 8th Grade Magnet Chorus, directed by Mrs. Kim Roberts.

As a part of a new outreach initiative by Dr. McLain, four private performances will also be given at Hartsville Middle School to over 1,600 Darlington County K–12 students. Admission is free with a free-will offering accepted at the door. For more information, please contact Dr. Christi McLain at email@example.com.
