An amazing experience. We were in the Oratorio due to repairs being carried out on the Church. The setting was very intimate and the artistes simply brilliant. The two singers and the pianist really brought the music to life. Cannot wait to go back.

Although we are not usually fond of soprano voices, the two we heard were inspirational, with exceptionally sweet voices. We were appalled at the ignorance and ill manners of those who talked in the audience and left while the three wonderful artistes were still in our presence. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful evening listening to the beautiful music of Puccini in the beautiful old church in Lucca. It was a wonderful thing to do on our vacation and we would highly recommend it! The artists were extremely talented and the sound in the church was amazing. We were three couples travelling to Italy for the first time and to be in Italy listening to Italian opera in a beautiful old church was one of the highlights of our trip. I would agree with an earlier review that it was difficult to find the church.....but certainly worth the search!

We came to Lucca for 2 months and went to 5 of the Puccini concerts. I went from not being fond of opera to being a true lover because of these concerts. I highly recommend all of the concerts which happen 7 nights a week. Lucca is not Lucca without these!

This event is not to be missed - I have seen the program on 3 different occasions and was thrilled each time. Realizing that most attendees or NOT Italian means they have already seen the program or are spoiled with the availability of superb talent-
Well worth seeing and maybe more than once.

Make the effort to see - this will not disappoint
