I have attended the Puccini concerts twice, last year (2016) and a few years earlier. There is something every night of the year, and is so easily booked online before (I picked the tickets up on the day of the concert there). The first time we were treated to a wonderfully entertaining short talk on the history of Puccini's fraught... More

After visiting Florence to see a few art museums and walking around we head back to Lucca to finish our Day at Puccini e la sua Lucca. The church was beautiful and the price of 20 Euros is very reasonable. You could go a few different times as each show is different. This topped our beautiful day of the arts.

What an evening! If I were to spend a week in Lucca, I would go to the concert every night. A truly wonderful and memorable experience. Will definitely do it again next time I'm in Lucca.

While researching things to do in Lucca, I was pleasantly surprised to discover the daily Puccini festival. I have always wanted to see an opera while in Italy, so this was the next best thing. The singers and music were wonderful and the acoustics in the church venue were terrific. The performances are a little more than a hour and... More

Wonderful that Lucca hosts this festival. Tickets can be ordered online and response is rapid. Collect & pay just before the concert. However, it's not necessary to reserve. We went in April 2016. It's was lovely concert & is finished early enough to go for a meal afterwards. A very pleasant experience I would recommend. I think the tickets are... More

We have visited Lucca twice. The first visit we attended the Puccini Festival at the Chiesa di San Giovanni one evening and on our return trip we attended twice. We could have gone every night! This is wonderful concert held each evening of the year. There is generally a soprano and tenor, or perhaps a soprano, tenor and baritone accompanied... More

We attended an evening in August 2016 and were blown away by it. For many of us in our group of 8, it was a first experience of opera, but it will not be the last! The quality of the performances and the atmosphere in the church were captivating. The music was memorable and we came out singing. Thank you... More

Although the concert started late due to the principal male singer being in a car accident on the way, the alternate male was spectacular and the show went on!

Not the quality expected - was more like a school representation in ikea chairs! The main singer did not arrive on time due to traffic (!!!)
