You have a piano, soprano & tenor performing Opera’s love song and Italian love songs. The setting and performance is overwhelmingly powerful. You’ll be moved to tears by the emotions. Not to be missed. « less

As a novice not sure what to expect but really entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable. The advertising pamphlet programme was different to what was actually sung which was disappointing. Brilliant venue.

I am not an opera fanatic. To be quite honest, I find opera take to much time and are quite boring at times. But this opera on the other hand, was absolutely wonderful! The singers were enthusiastic and had beautiful voices. For me it was a sort of 'soft opera' and that was perfect. Especially the love song duets, were... More

Went to see La Boheme and was amazed at how incredible the performance was! All of the actors were amazingly talented with beautiful voices and great acting skills. The acoustics in St. Marks are wonderful. I would recommend sitting in the raised seats at the back if you are sensitive to volume, especially since the seats are raised so as... More

I went with my granddaughter who didn't think she liked opera. We both really enjoyed it. Top singing talent and charming venue. I live in New York and have opera available often, but this was different. The fact that it was Italy made it even more special. Loved everything about it.

Opera in Florence but didn't bring your tux? No worries, this is a neat idea with lots of great side benefits. The production, held inside an Anglican Church, is minimal as is the musical accompaniment. But it works, and the singers are outstanding. The place is small to give their voices a soar and it makes you feel as though... More

Went to Opera Night in Florence, Italy at St. Mark's English Church. The church was built in 1877 to teach Anglo-Catholic principles. The inside is beautifully ornate and has a small congregation but is primarily a worship house used as a special venue for various occasions. A pianist, a Mezzo-soprano and a Baritone entertained the audience singing famous arias as... More

After reading the good reviews on TA we went along on a Saturday night to Madame Butterfly. My husband and I left after the first act, during the intermission. We felt slightly guilty as we slinked away into the night, but it was just too much. The singing, costumes and 'intimacy' (of the venue) were the good things. The not-so-good... More

Franz the piano player and the 2 singers were... More

I wanted a short and informal intro to Italian opera for my 12 year old son. St Mark's did a wonderful job. The pieces were short and appear mostly well sung. The setting inside the small church was cozy. The only problem was that our view was obstructed by the pillars. A great complement to just going to the many... More
