NHCC & Opera Southwest Present Daniel Catan’s Il Postino

February 2February 9

February 2, 7 & 9, 2020
2 pm—Sundays
7:30 pm—Friday

Opera Southwest presents Daniel Catán’s Il Postino, a fully staged opera with orchestra, sung in Spanish with both Spanish and English translation supertitles, and presented in two acts with one intermission.

Presented in partnership with the National Hispanic Cultural Center, Il Postino is based on the novel Ardiente Paciencia by Antonio Skármeta, as well as the film by Michael Radford. When exiled Chilean poet Pablo Neruda arrives on a tiny Italian island, he receives so much fan mail that Mario is hired as his personal postman. Mario soon becomes Neruda’s student, learning the art of poetry to woo a local barmaid. Inspired by Neruda, Mario’s poetic voice continues to take wing as he expresses the struggles of his fellow working class villagers. A firm friendship develops, and the postman is forever a changed man.

$19, $39, $59, $79, $99; discounts for groups of eight or more and patrons 30 and younger

The sounds of the Mediterranean come alive in Catán’s stunningly beautiful, Puccini-esque score—a story of love in its many forms, set against a backdrop of conflicting political and spiritual ideologies.
