Saw Madam Butterfly 20 July 2018. Waste of money. Couldn’t hear the singing, which was mediocre to say the least. Appalling set design - 3 lumps of rock and a slope. Bizarre support cast costumes. Left at the interval. Have seen Puccini operas around the...More

More than 3000 seats are in the theater. It is very well done, easy to come and go. The seats are also not bad. Just if you don't like open-air performances, than dont go.

The location is stunning and the whole event has a frisson of excitement. But the quality of the singing is barely better than acceptable and the organization is less than impressive. The evening we went, the audibility of the music was affected by strong winds,...More

We liked the production, it was beautiful and of good quality. The theatre is nice and quite comfortable, seats were easily found. They warn you the mosquitoes are a pest, but if you make reasonable precautions and spray yourself with a repellent, you'll be fine....More

We had the advantage of being escorted by an experienced visitor to the site and the opinions of other reviewers. Thus we took a picnic and our Prosecco, arrived in ample time, (allowing a speedy exit due to proximity of parking) and enjoyed a pleasant...More

We paid 80 euros for our tickets for each opera performance. The whole experience was a disappointment for several reasons. 1. The plastic seats were OK for an hour's sitting, but the operas lasted well over 2 hours, sometimes 3 and. after that length of...More

This was central to our short break to Lucca so we were determined to enjoy ourselves. Location is a bit out of the way so I would recommend getting the shuttle bus. They operate from Lucca. We picked one up in Viareggio. Cost €30 return...More

A great place. This ugly theatre is set in the most beautiful surroundings and even those with the hardest heart couldn't help but warm to its atmosphere. I had tried to find out where best to park etc but couldn't really find much. The theatres...More

Fabulous location for Puccini Operas, centered on the village where Puccini lived for so many years and composed so many of his works. The theatre is spectacular, and the operas are very well produced. The performers and acoustics were very good, I can't share the...More

The opera itself was very good (La Boheme) but getting there was exhausting. When at the head of a long line of traffic we showed our Blue Disabled Badge this was ignored and we were sent with the rest of the traffic. I waited for...More
