ABOUT THE SHOWS

IL POSTINO


Il Postino (The Postman) weaves together the rush of romance, the endurance of friendship, and the danger that lurks at the intersection of art and politics. Kostis Protopapas conducts. Crystal Manich, last with OSB for The Cunning Little Vixen, returns to direct. Raúl Melo makes his OSB debut as the poet and Daniel Montenegro last seen in 2011’s Trouble in Tahiti as the titular postman. "Opera Santa Barbara's steadfast and poignant presentation...[unveiled] one of the strongest productions this reviewer has witnessed by the small yet tightly focused company." - Robert Adams, Voice SB
