Il Postino (The Postman) - Opera Santa Barbara

Il Postino (The Postman) - Opera Santa BarbaraOpera SB is thrilled to present its first Spanish opera, Il Postino (The Postman).

Based on the Oscar-winning film, the opera chronicles the enduring friendship between exiled Chilean poet Pablo Neruda and Mario, the shy postman who brings him his fan mail. Mario becomes Neruda’s student, learning the art of poetry to woo a local barmaid and to express the struggles of his fellow villagers.


The sounds of the Mediterranean come alive in Daniel Catán’s acclaimed opera sung in Spanish with English supertitles. Based on the Oscar-winning film, Il Postino (The Postman) chronicles the enduring friendship between exiled Chilean poet Pablo Neruda and Mario, the shy postman who brings him his fan mail. Mario becomes Neruda’s student, learning the art of poetry to woo a local barmaid and to express the struggles of his fellow working-class villagers who live on a small Italian island in the 1950s.

Kostis Protopapas conducts. Crystal Manich, last with OSB for The Cunning Little Vixen, returns to direct. Arnold Rawls makes his OSB debut as the poet and Daniel Montenegro last seen in 2011’s Trouble in Tahiti as the titular postman.
