Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

For opera lovers, and especially for Puccini fans, this is a must. I went two consecutive evenings in June 2022. You get a discount on the second night by showing your previous night’s ticket. The program changes each night. However, both programs I saw included Nessun Dorma, in case you are hoping to hear that aria!

Each concert featured a soprano, a tenor and a pianist. The singers take turns and also sing duets. The singing is top-notch, and the acoustics are decent. I loved that the venue setup is intimate; you are very close to the performers.

Amazing concert, with extracts of some of Puccini’s most popular pieces … and others that were a delight to discover. The hour long concert and early evening schedule was perfect to fit in before supper and after a day of other activities. A must in Puccini’s Lucca

It is really unfair of Tripadviser to pick a headline describing these events as poor. One bad review out of a thousand very positive reports, including the three ***** sidelined once one gets past the headline. Almost every review is from a person, like me, who really enjoyed these little events. Three top class performers, pianist, soprano and baritone producing beautiful music for €20 and all they can do is complain it was expensive and finished a little late for their dinner, though they apparantly enjoyed the actual performance.. Shame on them.
An hour of opera for that price and in that beautiful church was a great opportunity for the start to a pleasant evening. Well done Lucca.

Wonderful, unforgettable and 100% recommended!
In the cool and historic church of Santi Giovanni, the Puccini highlights (piano, soprano, tenor) were beautifully and passionately performed, and the standing ovation at the end was... inevitable. And a lovely atmosphere and thrilling encore.
Thank you the performers, an absolute highlight from a wonderful stay in Lucca for my wife and I.

(Quick advisory: our ticket suggested Piazza Antelminelli, but actually it was Piazza Santi Giovanni just around the corner)

Absolutely a must when in Lucca. For 20 Euro you can't go wrong. Beautiful arias and excerpts from various Operas , but mainly Puccini.
But your Ticket at the spot and save some cash.

To sit inside this magnificent church and listen to Puccini magic in all its glory was unforgettable . The Italian tenor had the real passionate throb and the soprano soared beyond the heights of the magnificent roof . Listening to inspiring music sung in Puccini s home town in his own language was to sit at the feet of the Master and retrace history - cannot recommend it highly enough to any music lover - we sang sole mio all the way home to our accommodation

Excellent acoustics for Friday's Puccini Opera Recitals! Well known as well as less familiar renditions. Beautifully delivered with an amazing pianist at the grand piano. Audience encouraged to wear masks and can self select seating. Paid €20 for my ticketwhich enableda discounted ticket the followingevening. Truly uplifting experience. Well worth the visit.

The is a lovely musical evening in a lovely setting. The soprano and tenor alternate singing separately and together, accompanied by a highly skilled pianist, who also performs a couple of outstanding solos. The caliber of the performers was very high. Even is you only has a passing interest in opera, this is a great opportunity to hear lovely music in a lovely setting. We enjoyed it so much hat we went back a second night (and enjoyed two different performers). It was memorable to hear Puccini's music performed in his home town of Lucca. The theater was quite full so it is recommended to purchase tickets in advance.

Fantastic performance by some extraordinarily talented artists. We arrived 15 mins early to the oratory, no line and plenty of seating. Date of concert December 23, 2021. Highly recommended.

Saw this - pre booked online - on a recent stay in Lucca. Lovely deconsecrated chapel next to the cathedral.
Two excellent performers who were accompanied by an equally excellent pianist.
Shame there weren't more people there to enjoy it on the night but this didn't detract from my enjoyment.
The performance lasted for an hour and included all the favourite arias.
I could've listened for another hour.
Well worth the money and I can highly recommend.
