LUCCA CLASSICA MUSIC FESTIVAL
FIRST LOOK APRIL 28/29/30 – MAY 1
MORE THAN 90 EVENTS IN THE CITY
CHILDREN AND FAMILY FOCUSED ACTIVITIES
From May 2 to 5, 2019 Lucca will be hosting the 5th edition of the LUCCA CLASSICA MUSIC FESTIVAL, event promoted by the Associazione Musicale Lucchese in collaboration with the Teatro del Giglio.
An edition offering even more surprises, with over 90 events – for the most part free – and a first look inside the festival from April 28 to May 1.
The most beautiful places in the city – the historic palaces, squares, churches, auditoriums and museums – will come to life with music and words, transforming into an evocative “vast stage” where great names of international music and young talents will come together with scientists, actors and cultural personalities.
Unpublished works by Giacomo Puccini will be premiered during the festival.
Classical music lovers will also have the unique opportunity to listen to Beethoven’s poignant “Clair de Lune” performed as part of an evocative concert celebrating 50 years from the first moon landing, in a unique concert performed at night.
Many events for children and families will also be on hand.
In addition to the concerts, other appointments include a special collaboration with the Cortile dei Gentili (a special body of the Pontifical Council for Culture) and his President, His Eminence Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, who will be awarded the Lucca Classica 2019 Award. On May 2nd, we will also be celebrating the 500th anniversary from Leonardo Da Vinci’s death and we will host a special concert with Salvatore Accardo and the Orchestra da Camera Italiana.
