Hamlet at Villa Oliva

What better place to watch an open air operatic  performance of Hamlet than Villa Oliva on the Strada del Vino.

The Strada del Vino is in the hills around Lucca only 20 mins drive from tuscanrooms.

There are many fantastic Villas and vineyards to visit along the Strada but last night Villa Oliva opened its gates for an evening of Opera.

We were lucky enough to go and are so glad we did. On arrival we had time to explore the grounds around the Villa and then enjoy a glass of Prosecco on the lawn before the performance began.

Hamlet the opera of Francesco Gasparini was performed by the Accademia Italiana di Canto and its orchestra.

The performance lasted 2 hours with an interval…more Prosecco…..and was enjoyed by the large audience that had attended.

We finished the night off with a meal with great friends up in the hills but there are also restaurants on the Strada del Vino which are well worth trying.

I will look out for further events at the Villas and let you know what is on when you book with tuscanrooms.
