My wife and I have been attending the concerts for five years and we still find them wonderful. The pianist Diego Fiorini is very good. Tenor Domenico Menini’s rendition of Neapolitan songs was lovely. The surprise of the night was Soprano Alessandra Rossi, she was...More

Highly recommended for a quiet hour in the evening before dinner. Although it’s advertised to start at 7 pm, on both evenings it didn’t start until 7.15. A different programme every night of the week with some very popular extracts and some lesser well known...More

We attended the Friday evening performance of select opera pieces. The performance was very nice and was a great introduction to Puccini's works. The setting is lovely. The church is chilly, though, so remember to bring a sweater or coat. And they only take cash,...More

We took our two ten year olds - their first taste of opera. They were literally blown away. Such talented singers and pianist in the a most memorable location. We all loved it.

What an absolute treat to see the Puccini-Verdi performance while we were visiting for a day in beautiful Lucca! It runs every evening in high season, yet no two performances are the same. Highly recommended.

What an unexpected treat! The setting, performers, and overall experience was truly one of a kind. This is not an event to miss whilst in Lucca.

This is an excellent way to spend a relaxing evening listening to some of the finest performers in Tuscany. A small setting where all the seats are close up and personal.

Nice to spend an evening before dinner at the Puccini opera. They start at 7pm for the most part the whole year! It can get little warm inside during summer!🎼🎼

Very enjoyable! O Sole Mio for encore. Started 10 minutes late but local artists were very engaged and responsive. Two good piano solos in addition to vocalists. Lasted about an hour. Included a Verdi duet and Mozart duet
