Saga to offer “The Musical Mediterranean” cruise for opera lovers

Opera fans can immerse themselves in music and drama during Saga Sapphire’s 19-night summer sailing in the Mediterranean with on-board singing lessons and performances as well as visiting Puccini’s favourite haunt, Torre del Lago, in Italy.

The opera-themed events also feature a ‘pop-up’ opera and listening to the modern genre of rock opera.
When the box office opens, Saga also hopes to be able to offer tickets to the annual open-air Puccini Festival in Torre del Lago.

Saga Sapphire moors overnight in Livorno for the visit Torre del Lago, where Puccini’s summer villa is now a museum, with a further option to take an excursion to Florence, birthplace of the Italian Renaissance.

Barcelona has inspired many musicians and singers over the centuries and an overnight call during The Musical Mediterranean cruise allows guests to time to explore the unique culture of this stylish city.
The chic 720-passenger ship also calls into Cartagena, Castellón de la Plana and Ibiza, Spain; Lisbon, Portugal; Monte Carlo, Monaco and Gibraltar.
