Not a opera fan so I am missing the wow factor. If you are, take this in. It is easy to find. It is not friendly to English speakers.

Excellent singers and pianist. A must for everyone even those with no exposure to opera. Professional singers sing arias from operas composed by world renowned composers, not just Puccini but Verdi, Mozart, Donizetti, Rossini, Bellini and more. For an hour each evening, one can be...More

We stumbled upon a poster advertising the Thursday night concert by chance. It was the highlight of our stay in Lucca. Remarkable acoustics in the San Giovanni church. Excellent musical talent. Only 20 Euros. Worth every bit of it!

Whilst I’m not an opera fan, I thought a visit to Lucca wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Puccini concert. It is a beautiful setting & the concert was very powerful & I appreciated the passion of all three of the performers.

This was something different to do seeing as how I had never been to an opera before. If you're there and you have time I recommend going but I wouldn't make a special trip to Lucca just for it

Daily one hour concert given by two singers and a pianist. The concert is centered around Puccini, of course, but other composers are not ignored. The acoustics are so so, as is to be expected in a church, but no matter. If you buy your...More

Hmm, not sure. If they are very musical and Ok with sitting very quietly? I have only been a few times and didn’t see young children there.

I think it's as the comment before this. This Puccini concert was a wonderful memory for us! I hope it works out for the train.
