2020 66th Puccini Festival - REVISED - Gran Teatro all' Aperto Giacomo Puccini

Torre del Lago, home of the Puccini Festival, lies between the Lake of Massaciuccoli and the Tyrrhenian Sea, 4 kilometres far from the magnificent beaches of Viareggio on the Tuscan Riviera, 25 kilometres from Lucca and 14 from 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.
