NHCC & Opera Southwest Present Daniel Catan’s Il Postino

February 2February 9
Albuquerque Journal Theatre 1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

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

¡HAH! Happy Arte Hour 2020

6- 8 pm (new time!)

This year, in the spirit of the NHCC’s 20th Anniversary, we have invited back some of the artists that have contributed to the success of Happy Arte Hour over the years. Many of these artists were part of past exhibitions or have pieces of art in our permanent collection.

On the first Thursday of the month, NHCC invites adults for artistic fun in a relaxed social setting, which includes snacks, refreshments, and beer & wine for sale from Pop Fizz. This is a great opportunity for friends to hang out, a unique date night option, or a place to come solo and connect with fellow art enthusiasts.

On February 6, Nick Abdalla and Susan Spring will join us again for Valentine Assemblage!

Please pre-register HERE (so we know how many materials to prepare). Registration for the following month is available the day after the current program month.

For more information please call or email Elena Baca at 505-246-2261 or ElenaD.Baca@state.nm.us

Free, $5+ donations are encouraged to support the artists & purchase supplies
