Science fiction literature, one of the most popular and entertaining genres in modern fiction, has been read and loved by children and adults for decades. From the earliest pulp publications to modern masterpieces, science fiction short stories and novels have often functioned as a lens through which we express our sense of wonder, marvel at the possibilities of new technologies, and engage in our wildest imaginings. Join us as we celebrate the fantastic and strange in science fiction literature.
2:00 pm - 5:00 pm - CSUN Campus Theatre
CENDRILLION by Jules Massenet. Libretto by Henri Cain.
This Massenet opera approaches the classic French fairy tale, Cinderella, with a musical sense of humor---wonderfully frothy and liberally spiced with dry Gallic wit. This is one grand ball you'll not want to miss. Sung in French with English supertitles. Directed by Maurice Godin. Musical direction by David Aks.
