The meal was ok but not such a special experience; fixed menu with no choice but that is what was advertised. The concert venue was easy to find but be aware that you need to visit the venue ticket office when you get there on the night with your GYG voucher to collect your tickets!! We had VIP first row tickets; and worth every penny!! Concert was excellent, great venue, wouldn’t hesitate to do it again but I’d just go for the concert tickets. Well worth it!!

The concert was wonderful. The two singers had fabulous voices. We were totally involved. I wish they had something/subtitles that would say what they were singing and from what opera. How to get the vouchers was not as easy as I'd like. Not knowing where and how to get the tickets meant we walked around not knowing how long we had to pick up the tickets. Would it be that hard to provide specific place and times to pick them up?

Good pianist, soprano and tenor. They make a beautiful representation of it. If a real opera takes too long, this is a nice alternative.

Enjoyed authentic Italian arias in a small church in Lucca. The singers were damn good.

My cousins and I really enjoyed the top notch performance and entertainment!
