The fruit of a collaboration between the City of Lucca, the Fondazione Giacomo Puccini and Teatro del Giglio, the Lucca Puccini Days festival has now reached its fifth edition, produced with support from the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Lucca and prestigious backing from MIBAC – Ministero dei Beni e delle Attività Culturali, the Tuscan Region and AGIS Toscana.
Defining this new edition of the festival is the particular attention dedicated to the “musical” Puccini, who will be studied, celebrated and divulged keeping the originality of his compositions foremost in mind. In Lucca at Puccini Days, new productions, exclusive programming and more will come to life, finding a fitting space within the context of this ongoing festival.
Highlights will include a new production of the two single acts Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicci, for which Denis Krief serves as director as well as set, costumes and light designer. Overseeing musical direction is Marco Guidarini.
Also worth noting will be the concert Giacomo Puccini, pagine sinfoniche by Beatrice Venezi with the Orchestra della Toscana, the Quartetto d’Archi del Teatro alla Scala concert, which will feature Simone Soldati on pianoforte; the recital Giacomo Puccini in duo by the piano duo Datteri – Lencioni; and finally, the pièce teatrale Il mio, Giacomo Puccini by Guendalina Tambellini, focused on Elvira Bonturi, Puccini’s wife (this show will be making its world premiere during the festival).
