Perfect setting for a wonderful concert. It was a warm July night. However, the church was comfortable and the music was just the right mix of arias. The male and female singers were excellent, accompanied by an outstanding pianist. A lot of entertainment packed into one unforgettable evening.

A very special activity to do in the evening in Lucca… and then go have dinner at one of the restaurants in the piazza with Puccini’s statue! The concert lasts one hour, 7-8pm, and was wonderful!

Wonderful exposure to Puccini. We didn’t know his history in Lucca until we had a chance to attend the concert.

This was a great show and we really enjoyed it. If you don’t know Puccini’s music it’s a great way to start!!

This hour long concert was very enjoyable. The singing was excellent and varied. The venue was ideal.
