We have just seen a wonderful performance of Tosca sung by a soprano, tenor and baritone who were accompanied by an excellent pianist. Only 18€ for a performance which was emotional, exciting and very professional. It is in beautiful church where Puccini was organist and the acoustics add to the evening. If you visit Lucca this is a must.

We saw the advert for this year round Puccini concert in a church outside the Puccini museum and were able to buy tickets for the next evening. The programme was a mixture of well known arias. The acoustic was amazing and for a non opera bluff just the right length to enjoy the great man's music in his home town.... More

We went to this concert on a Wednesday night. Believe me we are not opera fans but all 4 of enjoyed this, my wife was in tears with the first song that was sung. Provided a awesome end to the day in Lucca.

The program lasts about an hour. We saw the Ladies of Puccini, or Le Donne di Puccini. Two women alternated the singing of arias from his famous operas. It was magical. The acoustics in the1500 year old church (it wasn't built in 1500, it's actually that old) were amazing. So glad we went and I recommend it as one of... More

Visited the Puccini House, which is interesting and well run - but then do the music too. An orchestral concert with four tenors set in the Servi convent was a highlight of a Lucca stay. Tip - check out the website puccinielasuapuccini.com if planning to visit the region. Tickets can be reserved by email. Second tip - church pews are... More

Going straight to the Italian heart in you - this evening will make you a part of history and art in this surreal medieval town perfectly preserved. Do not miss this extraordinary opportunity to enjoy real and original art offered with love and passion.

She turned to me more than once during the concert to say, "This is so beautiful!" As we left she said, "And they had no microphones!" (The acoustics in the Basilica are awesome.)

This is a great way to spend an hour to start your evening in Lucca. The performances are every night of the year at 7 or 7:15 and are over by 8:00 or 8:15. Seeing Puccini and other composers performed in Lucca is a real treat. The performers were virtuosos. Since this only lasts an hour, you can then continue... More

Whilst we are not opera lovers, or even understand it, for 20 euros each (10% less if you book in advance through tourist office) it's a great experience. Held in a beautiful if somewhat creepy old church, you are part of a small audience and really get the feel for it. The notes of the singers soar and the piano... More

Much easier than booking and travelling to the open air theatre for full opera. Highly professional performance but series of arias from different works rather than the full thing. Only duet was encore. Very talented pianist as well. Every visitor to Lucca really should go.
