What an experience

Wonderful building with great sound. The opera was very moving! Good value for money and only about 1-1.5 hours. Definitely worth soaking up the atmosphere!

we thought that being in lucca the organisation of a puccini festival was a excellent idea and would enhance a evening or day with some local and international culture. we were disappointed by the poor local setting of the concert, no organisation on site and no festival atmosphere . Lucca could make a star festival with this great composer but... More

Holidaying in Luca with family and friends where we had a lovely time.. A visit to puccini's house was truly amazing. Just sitting there listening was music to the ears. A very tiny house sat by the most beautifull lake. The surroundings are truly stunning. There are concerts most nights in the open air. Well worth a visit...

The concerts which take place most evenings are performed by excellent singers and musicians. The programme is usually a selection of excerpts from Puccini's music and of others, eg Verdi. They are performed in a beautiful church with a great acoustic. The concert lasts about an hour so is perfectly timed before dinner. It's very good value at, currently, 18... More

Saw Puccini's women, the sopranos Melissa Di Biasio and Frederica a Nicotre was fantastic as was the pianist Flavio Fiorini. If you are in Lucca do not miss it it is an evening to remember

I had heard about Puccini being sung in Lucca and went to hear it 2 years ago. This year, I returned again to Lucca with my family, not only because it is a fabulous city with beautiful architecture, frescoes, wonderful restaurants and shops that is easily biked around, both in town and on the ancient wall surrounding the city, but...

The arias were famous and very pleasant. The singers good and the pianist very tallented. Most of the people in the audience were foreigners - including children. It is really a pity that more Italians do not support one of most important exports - opera. It is really a different evening.
