Music Lovers Flock To The Puccini Festival

From July 12th to August 24th, the best reason for tourists to find a good Tuscany villa to rent is the Puccini Festival, which is held in celebration of the musical legacy of world-famous Italian composer Giacomo Puccini. During the festival some of the composer’s beloved operas are performed at the outdoor theatre stage called ‘Gran Teatro al Aperto’ in Torre del Lago. Puccini’s immortal operas, from ‘Tosca’ to ‘Madama Butterfly’, are performed here against the breathtaking backdrop of Massaciuccoli Lake in a location that is very near the famous Villa Puccini. 

This year, the Puccini Festival Foundation has a compelling line-up of performances until the third week of August, including four performances of ‘Tosca’, five performances of ‘Turandot’, three performances of ‘Il Tabarro’, as well as a number of music concerts featuring many of Puccini’s works. Tourists who are unable to rent a Tuscany villa right in the vicinity may still take part in the festival by staying in hotels and other forms of accommodation in adjoining towns. Since 1930, the Puccini Festival has immensely benefited from the participation of some of the most renowned names in world opera, such as Tito Gobbi, who debuted as a director for ‘Tosca’, and Mario del Monaco, who chose the Festival as the venue for his farewell performance with ‘Il Tabarro’. 

Those who intend to be among the more than forty thousand visitors who flock to the Puccini Festival every year can find a good Tuscany villa from To Tuscany, a company that provides a diverse range of accommodation that is authentically Tuscan. To Tuscany has a complete portfolio of properties in Chianti, Puglia and Umbria, ranging from apartments, to cottages, to self-catering villas, and even castles.
