The Theatre

The theatre is located in Torre del Lago Puccini, Viareggio. A stunning location which hosts one of the italian most important opera festivals. Singers and directors worldwide known, yearly attend this incredible celebration!

The theatre can accommodate up to 600 people very comfortably.
And not just that!

Excellent professional structures for directors, technical services for control rooms, lights, rehearsal rooms. Enjoy the fantastic view on the lake from the fascinating wraparound terrace! Stare at the charming foyer’s architecture and sip a cocktail in the elegant lounge.
You can have dinner in the Theatre’s restaurant if you like.

Inside, remember to have a look at all the exhibitions held in Giacomo Puccini’s honour.
If the sun is shining – which is something that happens really often here in Italy! – have a walk in the outside park, through woods and meadows.
Stop by the garden centre to smell the heady smell of all the botanic herbs.
