Puccini Postcards

Encouraged by the great success of past years, the ‘Cartolina Pucciniana’ (Puccini Postcard) season is returning. There are opera recitals around the corner from the composer’s birth house created in collaboration with the Teatro Del Giglio, Fondazione Giacomo Puccini and Puccini Birth house Museum. In the picturesque setting of Piazza Cittadella, a Puccini location par excellence in the heart of Lucca, next to Puccini’s statue, you can listen to selections of arias and duets from the Maestro’s most famous and beloved works, with piano accompaniment. These are magical concerts, through which the public can approach the great Puccini opera repertoire easily and informally, surrounded by the unique atmosphere of the streets and monuments of the composer’s birth house.
