After touring the church and learning of the nightly Operatic concerts, with music by Puccini, my husband and I were eager to purchase tickets for the open-seating concert. Nightly Puccini concerts began in 1930 and continue nightly, with varying selections. There are a few weeks in November ( we were told), when concerts are held on Thursdays. I would double... More

After an unbelievable Puccini concert in Vienna, with the leading of the fantastic Andrea Colombini, I decided to visit Lucca, the home city of the composer. That was a great decision! Beautiful set in the Cathedral. A fantastic pianist with two superb singers. Every day! concert! Very special experience. That is a must, if you visit Toscana!

This is a 'must do' in Lucca. The town is steeped in history, with music at it's heart. Spend an hour pre-dinner to listen to some of Puccini's music performed by excellent musicians and opera singers. The setting is very informal in a high vaulted church which makes the experience very special.

We stumbled across this gem of an attraction while at the Puccini Museum - booked tickets just off the stairs in the museum. We were not disappointed - a male singer, a female singer and a pianist, all superb at their craft, performing solos and duets for about an hour and a half. Beautifully set in the cathedral. We liked... More

Wonderful experience on my first night in Lucca. Saw the ad while in Venice. Venue is lovely at the Museum of the Cathedral and the pianist was exceptional!

Very short and poor performance voicewise and theaterwise. Everything pointed towards a good score in tripadvisor! Just the same everywhere touristic show.

A really top quality hour or so's entertainment: two splendid singers and a talented pianist, really bringing out the passion and delicacy of Puccini's arias. I wasn't sure what to expect, but was very pleasantly surprised by the superb singing.

We went to the concert on recommendation from travellers we met in Bologna. Afster we bought our tickets we discovered that the concert is in a much smaller version as its the off season(November to ...). A pianist, soprano and tenor. The concert was very good in a small hall, the voices were almost too powerful for the space. The... More

Attending the Puccini e la sua Lucca should be #1 on every visitor's list. We would have attended the performance again but we ran out of time. I will definitely see this Puccini recital again and again. The opera singers as well as the pianist performing at our event were first class and of the highest standard. Gracie Lucca.
