PBS Arts: Il Postino
The PBS Arts Fall Festival continues November 25 at 9pm with the world premiere performance of "Il Postino." Bask in the beautiful voice of world-renowned tenor Plácido Domingo with the LA Opera in this romantic new opera by composer Daniel Catán based on the Oscar-winning Italian film. "Il Postino" tells the story of a shy young postman in a tiny Italian fishing village, who discovers the courage to pursue his dreams through his daily deliveries to his only customer, the esteemed Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, played by Domingo. Multiple Grammy Award-winning singer Linda Ronstadt hosts the Great Performances special.
