Beautiful sets and great singing but book in the part near the stage. Long queues for drinks at intervals so buy a few drink tickets at end of each interval so then can go straight to bar. Taxis not keen to come here. Best to...More

We went to La Boheme and Turandot.The setting is stunning on the lakeside of Torre del Largo where Puccini lived .Wonderful experience but accoustics were not brilliant.Very well organised and stage settings outstanding. Would recommend a trip of a lifetime here,a little pricey though

Stunning evening and still feeling the effects as I write. Had the joy of seeing my first La Boheme. On the lakeside this vast open air theatre attracts so many. Car and coach parking a little mad, but it works. Arrived early and enjoyed the...More

Usually 2 or 3 Puccini operas and 1 or 2 Verdi opera are on the proram. Unortunately if there is a small wind, ot is very difficult to here the singers. But the festival itself is great. we have been there twice in former years.

Two years ago we came to Torre Del Lago and saw Tosca and although there is always something wonderful about listening to Puccini so near his home the standard was poor. Since then the Festival has found renewed vigour, they have contracted world class singers...More

Delighted to return to Largo having been there previously in 2005, for Madame Butterfly and Tosca. The auditorium has improved substantially but the seats are just as uncomfortable as before and the queues for the toilets unbearable and totally impractical -but only if you are...More

We saw Turandot and LaRondine in a row. Great music, nice performance. Especially LaRondine, less famous opera of Puccini. We thought it would be difficult to reach the Festival complex and to park, but it was very well organised. Just a few tips for Opera...More

We saw Boheme performed - and loved it. The event is great for the music and just as good for people-watching too. It's best to be reasonably smart - though some men did wear shorts. It's also fine to really dress up. (there seemed to...More

We saw Turandot and were very happy with both the production and the orchestra and singers. My friends who love opea and have been looking at this festival as a second rate one have now acknowledged it's becoming better and really worth seeing.
