Puccini and His World

Puccini and His World

27th Annual Bard Music Festival
Weekend One: August 5–7, 2016
Weekend Two: August 12–14, 2016

Often depicted as a 19th-century epigone, a composer out of step with his own time, the Festival will aim to present Puccini as a figure fully engaged with the central issues of musical modernity and of his time, and examine his oeuvre in the context of that of contemporaries such as Luigi Dallapicolla, Arrigo Boito, Ferruccio Busoni, Alfredo Casella, and many others.
