The Hands-on-Opera program of Opera Parallele is premiering another work written for (and including a chorus of) children this week. Xochitl and the Flowers, based on a book by Jorge Argueta, tells the story of a family from El Salvador that moves to the Mission and tries to make a new home there. Roma Olvera, the educational programs director for the ensemble, adapted the bilingual libretto.
