If the world’s most famous love poet could help you express yourself to the one you love, you’d never be either at a loss for words, or love, again… Based on the 1994 Oscar-winning film Il Postino (The Postman) a hapless mailman has Nobel Prize-winning poet Pablo Neruda to help him do just that. A new take on a timeless theme, our first “From Screen to Stage” series presentation, and your best chance to fall head-over-heels with what makes an opera classic.

Sung in Spanish with English Supertitles
