Saturdays bring a Night at the Opera, with a rich tapestry of pieces from the operatic repertoire, spanning from Handel to Puccini, and featuring all the major opera composers. On Sundays, Puccini's works are paired with traditional Neapolitan songs, including arias from his operas and Neapolitan melodies composed during his lifetime, creating a truly unforgettable experience.
