ANDREA BOCELLI IN CONCERT - 28th / 30th July 2018

Theatre of Silence

Lajatico 2018

“I see this land; I feel it pushing under my feet.

This is my land, a land that loves silence as I love it.

And if I break this silence with my voice, I do it to pay tribute to these places and to my people.

Music penetrates the earth, travels through it and flies far away.

It is a message of love”

Andrea Bocelli

 A project born from a dream and become a reality thanks to the deep love of Andrea Bocelli for his land.
A work of art built without invasive intervention, without the use of cement, a testimony of the profound respect for the roots of this land. An intense loving work, which has created a unique place in the world.
A theatre that remains silent for 364 days a year, and which will break the silence for a single day, one night, in perfect harmony with the surrounding environment, with its deep and touching, song as only the most famous tenor in the world can do.
This is the Theatre of Silence, this is the dream of a man who wanted to make a great gift to his people, to music, to poetry.
This year the Theatre of Silence will come alive with sounds, lights, colours and voices that are unique in the world, on the evenings of July 28th and 30th.
A unique experience, an emotion that strongly touches the soul.
