MONTECATINI OPERA FESTIVAL, one of the most relevant cultural events in town, expresses the genuine  long-lasting  link between this  town and culture, specially music.
Although the Festival  is mainly devoted to music and opera fans, with international singers and “new promising young artists “its first objective is to highlight both the musical tradition  and  the excellent  wine – gastronomic  products of this region, being both of them  forms of life enjoyment. The constantly growing number of the audience, mainly foreigners, who attend  the various events, even  in a difficult period where everything seems to go backward,  proves the successful formula of the Festival, this year at its fifteenth edition. It is confirmed  the prestigious cooperation with Luciano Pavarotti Foundation, a real forge of new talented singers and whose president is Mrs. Nicoletta Mantovani. The  result of this collaboration will be the great event celebrating the
bicentenary of Giuseppe Verdi’s birth, (4th September).
The season’s programme  presents 22 events, from April  to October, including two special selections of great operas enriched by costumes: LA TRAVIATA ( 8th July) and LA BOHÈME (26th August) – the latter not included in this year’s  Puccini Festival of Torre del Lago – and a special event totally dedicated to the great singer MARIA CALLAS (11th September) performed by the splendid Greek soprano Dimitra Theodossiou.
In addition all concerts will be made  even more enjoyable by the attractive location and other contemporary events.
Any event will take place inside the charming thermal buildings either in the amazing historical hall of the Excelsior, a real jewel of the early 20th century architecture and the ideal place to enjoy music as in a late 19th century salon or inside the Tettuccio, where you can still hear the echo of  the music of the great composers, who have made our town famous all over the world.

(April 11th – October 16th)
Art Director Maria Giulia Grazzini
