Virginia Opera Performs "Il Postino" This Weekend in RVA
Virginia Opera is back in town this weekend, performing Daniel Catán's "Il Postino" in the Carpenter Theatre at Dominion Energy Center. The opera is based on the 1994 Oscar-winning film, where a hapless mailman has Nobel Prize-winning poet Pablo Neruda to help him express himself to the one he loves. It's a new take on a timeless theme, Virginia Opera's "first 'From Screen to Stage' series presentation."
Performances are Friday evening at 8:00 and Sunday afternoon at 2:30. Artistic Director Adam Turner stopped by our VPM studios with tenor Daniel Montenegro (Mario Ruoppolo-the postman) to discuss this production. Enjoy our chat!
Yours in good music,
Mike Goldberg Classical Music Host, VPM Music
