His job was to simply deliver the mail. But when the poor and uneducated Mario meets Chilean exile and poet, Pablo Neruda, his life is forever changed. Set in the 1950s on a small island off the coast of Italy, Catán’s stunning score soars against a backdrop of political and spiritual conflict.

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