Puccini Festival – Madama Butterfly

July 30, 2022 @ 9:00 pm



August 6

Torre del Lago -open-air theatre on the shores of Lake Massaciuccoli

Giacomo Puccini spent three long years documenting and minutely studying the customs and traditions of Japan to shape Cio Cio San, his heroine who, 117 years after her first performance (Milan’s Teatro alla Scala on 17 February 1904) retains all her irresistible charm.

The 2022 season will see the greenproduction directed by Manu Lalli.

Manu Lalli’s ecological message is visually rendered with a beautiful forest of real trees on stage. Green trees in the first act that become dry and arid in the second and third, a clear message of condemnation against gender violence and the violence that man perpetrates every day against nature.

Alberto Veronesi, refined interpreter of the “Puccini” style, conducts the Puccini Festival Orchestra and Chorus.

The Puccini Festival is the most important opera festivals in Italy and the only one in the world dedicated to Puccini. It takes place in the summer, in the months of July and August, in the places that were inspirational for the Maestro. The Festival offers the opportunity to listen to great stars of world opera interpreting Puccini’s masterpieces, staged in a large open-air theatre on the shores of Lake Massaciuccoli, right in front of the Puccini House Museum.
