Saw Madam Butterfly 20 July 2018. Waste of money. Couldn’t hear the singing, which was mediocre to say the least. Appalling set design - 3 lumps of rock and a slope. Bizarre support cast costumes. Left at the interval. Have seen Puccini operas around the world and always enjoyed them. Never again at this venue.

More than 3000 seats are in the theater. It is very well done, easy to come and go. The seats are also not bad. Just if you don't like open-air performances, than dont go.

The location is stunning and the whole event has a frisson of excitement. But the quality of the singing is barely better than acceptable and the organization is less than impressive. The evening we went, the audibility of the music was affected by strong winds, and half way through, a few drops of rain stopped all proceedings for twenty minutes or so without any explanation. In short, Puccini's music is sublime and the experience is certainly not to be missed, but don't hold your breath about the quality of the cast or the risks of poor weather. And bring a cushion.

We liked the production, it was beautiful and of good quality. The theatre is nice and quite comfortable, seats were easily found. They warn you the mosquitoes are a pest, but if you make reasonable precautions and spray yourself with a repellent, you'll be fine. Don't that deter you from the experience. The Puccini festival is becoming better and better each year.

We had the advantage of being escorted by an experienced visitor to the site and the opinions of other reviewers. Thus we took a picnic and our Prosecco, arrived in ample time, (allowing a speedy exit due to proximity of parking) and enjoyed a pleasant hour or so admiring the beautiful lake side scenery.
The stage setting is a bit of a blot on the landscape, but required if you want to sit 3000 people down in the open air to listen to opera.
Either our hearing is more acute, or the La Boheme performers were better able to project their voice, because in row 21 we had no difficulty enjoying the performance. The seats were OK but a cushion would certainly have helped during the 3 hours we were in the theatre,
We had no recourse to use the facilities during the show so suffered none of the inconveniences voiced by other reviewers. However the timing of the intervals was longer than advised.
I would not hesitate to recommend a visit on a balmy summer evening to listen to great music and enjoy the collective appreciation of the audience. However I would recommend that visitors heed the advice and comments offered by others, to make their visit the more memorable
