Exhibition and Symposium about Giacomo Puccini

From http://arts.uchicago.edu/content/puccini-e-lucca-chicago-symposium

The University of Chicago will host an exhibit and symposium exploring the life work of Giacomo Puccini, acclaimed opera composer of La bohème, Tosca, and Madama Butterfly, and many others.

A celebratory symposium and reception are planned for Saturday, January 19, 2013, at 2-5 pm at the Logan Center.

The concurrent exhibit, Puccini e Lucca a Chicago (Jan 15—Feb 17, 2013), tells the little-known story of Puccini’s strong attachment to his hometown of Lucca, located in Tuscany, Central Italy. Presented in printed panels and rotating digital slides, the exhibit presents never-before-seen photographs of Puccini and the places where he grew up and was formed into one of the best-loved names in opera. The narrative, presented in both English and Italian, deepens the opera-going public's understanding of what motivated one of the world’s most celebrated opera composers.
