PUCCINI100 OPERA GALA

Moving with the music

A tribute to one of the greatest opera composers of history. Giacomo Puccini, whom we commemorate on the occasion of the Centenary of his death, was fascinated by Montecatini Terme and frequent visitor of its Spa. At the Tettuccio he loved meeting Arturo Toscanini together with masters such as Mascagni, his schoolmate, but also the great Enrico Caruso. In Montecatini Terme he composed La Fanciulla del West and in the surrounding area the III act of La Bohème. The opera gala presents excerpts from some of Puccini's most famous works.
