World Opera Day and the Puccini Museum



“World Opera Day” is celebrated all over the world on 25th October. This year takes on special significance due to the suspension of theatrical activities caused by the pandemic. The crisis forces us to reflect on the place of the opera in society and to ask ourselves when and how the performances will resume. World Opera Day 2020 is an essential step towards recovery that will be guided by a sense of purpose. As we rebuild our economies, aspire to recreate jobs and revive what contributes to people’s physical and mental well-being we ask ourselves “Can human beings survive without culture?”
