Very well done. Wonderful environment. The " San Giovanni Church " is fabulous. Perfect surrounding for a very pleasant performance.

Even if you don't like opera, it's well worth attending at least one evening of this choral offering. It's a rotating cast of opera singers performing Puccini and sometimes a little Verdi or other opera music. The accoustics in the old church make the music awesome. The guy who runs the festival is as entertaining as the music when he... More

Presented by a full-time company of professional musicians, these concerts feature arias by Puccini and other Italian opera composers. Presented an astonishing 365 nights a year, they are performed in the cathedral where Puccini was baptised. As a classical musician myself, I felt that the performance level was very high - it was a delightful evening of music in a... More

Lucca is a beautiful place to visit and the opera in the cathedral ... well spectacular. It is such a beautiful setting I kept pinching my self to convince myself that it was real. Make sure you go to the Black Sheep Restaurant for dinner after.

This was a memorable performance that we strongly recommend. The program was fairly light; the arias well chosen, about the right duration and reasonably priced.

We enjoyed a lovely evening listening to Puccini - the pianist was excellent indeed as was the Soprano and tenor. The church was the perfect setting and to listen to quality performers in such a lovely setting was indeed a very nice evening. Puccini concerts the icing on the cake for the wonderful Lucca.

With Opera tickets at the worlds major venues often costing hundreds of pounds for mid range seating it is refreshing to find a venue that delivers first rate performances at a fraction of the cost. At 16 Euro a ticket this is an unmissable opportunity to experience first rate opera singers in more intimate surroundings than most of us will... More

Welll worth the admission and the time. Performers and pianist extremely talented. Beautiful setting in the church where Puccini was babtised and was the organist in his early years.

I went with all my family and I really loved the experience! Best music with an amazing cenary... On the day that we went we heard the music of Puccini and Verdi together and the singers was fantastic. Even my daugther who is 7 years old loved. For todlers I do not think it is a good program because they... More

It was in a great location. The voices were magnificent, marred only by the strange acoustics of the former church in which the programs are presented. Puccini is still certainly a presence in this city, and rightly so. It's particularly thrilling to hear his works in places he actually frequents. We will go back for another performance. There are several... More
