The American Center for Puccini Studies
specializes in the presentation of unusual performing editions of the works of composer Giacomo Puccini and introduces many
neglected or unknown Puccini pieces to the music loving public. No other opera company in the world, let alone in the
United States, is exploring Puccini's lesser-known scores with such enthusiasm. The American Center for Puccini Studies
approaches these works with passion and a welcome appreciation of their historical context and is heroically fighting to preserve
an authentic performing tradition of the Puccini opera that may soon be irretrievably lost. Founded in 2004 by one of the world’s leading Puccini artists and scholars, Dr. Harry
N. Dunstan, the
company enjoys a varied and popular performance history, as well as active Education and Young Artist Development programs.
