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

I booked 2 tickets for my wife and myself as we were visiting Florence on our honeymoon. The church is a very romantic, intimate setting. The performers were extremely talented and the whole performance was a pleasure to listen to. They perform for about 30 minutes then an interval then another 30 minutes, In the interval you are able to... More

Not being an opera buff I did not know what to expect. I was more than pleasantly surprised. The quality of the performance surpasse al expectations in n interesting building. The lady pianist was truly outstanding. An overall intersting experience, not just for the cognoscenti.

This was wonderful - even better than I expected. Its a small church with great acoustics. You can't get a bad seat. price is reasonable. The voices are wonderful! The man who introduces the acts is funny and charming. I love opera and found this to be more fun than seeing an opera in one of the giant opera houses.... More

You sit so close to the performers that you almost feel like you are a part of the production. The singers were good and we really enjoyed this. Went more than once.

Saw the Marriage of Figaro.... The performance was amazing, so intimate and the acoustics were fabulous.....and angelic opera voices....would love to go again. Our seats were in the second row and had the opportunity to talk to the cast afterwards. Definitely worth our trip!

We have listened to the Marriage of Figaro. Beautiful the environment, very good the level of the singers with some of them absolutely perfect both in singing and in acting, beautiful costumes. But the thing that shocked us was that the singers where performing in the audience, as well as the opera was born. The opera was born as a... More

What a wonderful evening of music and laughter. Maurizio, Sara, and Leonardo gave a first class performance in this gorgeous, amazing venue. The description above is not quite accurate. The church dates back to the Medici's and was part of one of their palaces. Machiavelli owned it at one time too. There were modern touches added in places in the... More
