Blenheim Palace: The Orangery

Conductor of the Lucca Philharmonic Orchestra Andrea Colombini introduces singers from the renowned Puccini e la sua Lucca International Festival in a performance of music from Puccini and other celebrated Italian composers. The concert takes place at 7.30pm in Blenheim Palace’s Orangery and entry also includes a drinks reception at 6.45pm in the colonnades outside the venue.

Lucca Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 2010 by Colombini, who is from Lucca, Puccini’s home city. It performs across Italy and, since 2014, has performed every December at Vienna’s iconic Musikverein.

In September 2017 Andrea Bocelli sang with the orchestra at the Verdi Theatre in Pisa.

Colombini established The Puccini International Festival in 2004, which features concerts in Lucca every day of the year. He was the subject of a Sky Arts documentary broadcast on 3rd September 2017.

Blenheim Palace Festival of Literature Film and Music is working to bring over the full Lucca Philharmonic Orchestra to play in 2019.

The event including reception will last 1 hour and 45 minutes.

Note: this event differs from the one originally advertised in the festival pocket guide.
