Every year, near the beautiful Tuscan cities of Lucca , Pisa and Viareggio hosts the Giacomo Puccini Festival in summer when days are hot and nights are gentle.
For the 2024 edition, the well-known Italian set designer, costume designer and opera director Pier Luigi Pizzi will design the program of the Torre del Lago Festival 2024 on the occasion of this special edition marking the 100th anniversary of the death of the great maestro Giacomo Puccini.
For the operas Le Villi-Edgar, Tosca and Turandot, which will be performed under his direction, Pier Luigi Pizzi wants to create a technologically innovative overall work with direction, set design and costumes. According to his vision, the unfinished work “Turandot” ends with the famous poignant sound of the piccolo announcing the death of Liù.
Manon Lescaut is presented in the form of a concert and La Bohème is directed by Massimo Gasparon.
