by Daniel Catán
Sung in Spanish with English and Spanish surtitles.
Based on the beloved film and novel from the 1990’s, this gorgeous opera will transport you to an Italian island where the poet Pablo Neruda befriends an illiterate postman and teaches him to win a girl through poetry. Written for Placido Domingo, this opera premieres in Los Angeles in September 2010 and is scheduled for performances in Vienna and Paris. The composer was so delighted with our production of his opera Florencia en el Amazonas in 2009 that he has honored us by allowing us to present the first production of Il Postino in the U.S. after its premiere. Those familiar with Mr. Catán’s music will tell you it will surely be the most beautiful opera you have heard in a long, long time.
