SUMMER OPERA FESTIVAL
The Puccini Opera Festival, Torre del Lago
Tickets & Calendar of Events
This opera festival takes place every summer in Torre del Lago, the hometown of Giacomo Puccini.
Torre del Lago lies between the Lake of Massaciuccoli and the Tyrrhenian Sea, 4 kilometers far from the magnificent beaches of Viareggio on the Tuscan Riviera, 18 kilometers from Lucca and Pisa. The Festival welcomes about 40.000 spectators every year to its open-air theatre, just a few steps from the Villa Mausoleum where Giacomo Puccini lived and worked. His mortal remains are now in a small chapel inside the Villa.
Torre del Lago is a favorite destination for opera lovers and tourists who wish to visit the places where the most beloved composer of the 20th century lived. Performances take place at the Gran teatro all’Aperto G. Puccini.
