EVENTS IN THE CITY
CHILDREN AND FAMILY FOCUSED ACTIVITIES
From April 30 May 3, 2020 Lucca will be hosting the 6th edition of the LUCCA CLASSICA MUSIC FESTIVAL.
An edition offering even more surprises and a first look inside the festival from April 24 to 26.
Sponsored and organised by the Associazione Musicale Lucchese and Teatro del Giglio, the Festival is once again ready to transform the city into a large outdoor stage, drawing the music outside the confines of institutional structures that typically host it, invading Lucca.
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.
The event will involve hundreds of musicians and nearly 100 events (mostly free) hosted by some of most beautiful places the city has to offer – from its characteristic city walls, to the beautiful church of San Francesco, Piazza San Michele and the unique Piazza Anfiteatro, Giacomo Puccini’s Birth Home Museum, Palazzo Pfanner, Lucca’s National Museums (Palazzo Mansi and Villa Guinigi)
“The music and the places”, “Today’s music”, “Open rehearsals”, “Lucca Classica and the young musicians”, “Music in history”, “Music and science” are just a few examples of the different initiatives the Festival will propose, together with special events celebrating significant anniversaries, like those dedicated to Ludwig van Beethoven, as 2020 will commemorate the 250th anniversary of his birth.
Once again the Festival will be a unique and rewarding experience, a musical journey for all of us to discover and enjoy on our own or in the company of others.
