Now in its 23rd edition and sponsored by MIBACT – Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism, the Summer Festival Regina-International Music Festival of Montecatini Terme, is one of the most important events that characterize the prestigious concert season in Montecatini. The protagonists are the musicians of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino who represent the main artistic reference point of the Festival since its inception in 1998, and who alternate their presence with symphonic and chamber ensembles guaranteeing the highest artistic and cultural level.
The Festival, conceived and organized by the Cantiere Musicale di Toscana, has always taken place in the suggestive liberty locations of the Terme Tettuccio and Excelsior.
A historical and consolidated reality, the Regina Summer Festival confirms the formula with free admission in order to bring a more heterogeneous audience closer to classical music and opera, favoring a more spontaneous approach compared to what happens in traditional contexts.
The Festival is divided into two sections: the Classical Festival (generally in June and July) and Oci Ciorne – International Festival of Russian Culture (generally in September).
