Festival Puccini

Puccini Festival. The new program vunder the sign of the Kiss

From 23 July to 22 August 2021, on the shores of Lake Puccini a parade of stars, from Stefania Sandrelli to Toni Servillo

The theme of the kiss that tells of Love is the great firmament on which this special edition of the Puccini Festival of Torre del Lago 2021 will shine on the shores of Lake Puccini from July 23 to August 22.

Love in all its forms what we will see on the big stage immersed in the Puccini Lake: from Tosca to Turandot, from La Bohème to the new compositions inspired by the kiss.

Stefania Sandrelli, Daniele Abbado, Marco Scola di Mambro sign the direction of the three Puccini's operas in the bill to which are added events that will feature Toni Servillo, Stefano Massini, Giuseppe Montesano, Franco Marcoaldi and young composers.

For one week, the Torre del Lago Theater will also be the residence of the young artists of the Accademia del Teatro alla Scala.
With a great premiere: a sensational finale of La Bohème by Luciano Berio.
Giorgio Battistelli signs the 67th edition of the Puccini Festival.
A program that brings on stage 3 opera titles for 10 performances: Tosca, which will see the directing debut of Stefana Sandrelli; a new production of Turandot, co-produced with Livorno's Teatro Goldoni and signed by a great director Daniele Abbado; and La Bohème in the revival of the show directed by Ettore Scola, entrusted to Marco Scola di Mambro, former assistant to the great director.
