Placido Domingo as Pablo Neruda in the L.A. Opera's "Il Postino."

In collaboration with LA Opera, Grand Performances will present a free public screening of "Il Postino" Saturday, October 9, at 7:30pm, in California Plaza.

Composed by Daniel Catán, the critically acclaimed adaptation of the 1994 film features Plácido Domingo as Pablo Neruda. The highly anticipated new Spanish-language opera, delayed for a year, is currently selling out the Music Center where it will run until October 16.

This screening will be from a recording of a live 2pm matinee performance earlier that same day. In case you wondered, the Spanish opera will have English subtitles.

It is one of two free screenings, the second scheduled for Costa Mesa October 11. Members of "Il Postino" cast and creative team are scheduled to make an on-stage appearance at both public events.

Admission is free.

Screening of "Il Postino" / L.A. Opera and Grand Performances / Oct 9, 7:30pm / Free
