Love Duets’ Concert: you do not have to be a lover of Italian Opera to enjoy this wonderful evening. It’s set in a small church from 1800’s. 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.

For an authentic experience book a seat at St Marks Anglican Church in Florence and enjoy one of their opera performances. I just loved the way the inventive Italians got around the translation problems. For those of us who aren't fluid in the language a 'story teller' gave a run down in English before each act...a much more personalised solution... More

We attended the Opera at St. Mark's for a performance of love duets. It was a wonderful evening. Some in our group were new to opera and some had seen many -- everyone was thrilled with the performance. It was a lovely evening. The setting is intimate and beautiful. Seeing the performers from such a close distance is amazing. Highly... More

We enjoyed a lovely evening concert of operatic arias and piano pieces at St Mark's English church. very informal with lots of audience participation and laughs. We were made very welcome. The three performers were Franz Mozer, piano and MC, Ilaria Casai, soprano (sweet voice and very natural) and Franco Rossi (very powerful voice and larger than life personality). the... More

Our first opera experience could not have been better! I booked tickets for La Bohème after reading reviews on here. We decided to go via the church before dinner, to make sure we knew where we were going and check our tickets were there. Unfortunately, there had been a problem with the booking and we didn't have seats and it... More

We paid full price plus booking fee to see Carmen only to be disappointed to the max. This should be advertised as opera and the tickets are overpriced. We did not even get complimentary drinks (the show sells drinks in between acts). We left the show during the intermission because it was painful to watch. Acting was poor, amateur extras... More

I am so glad that I reserved tickets for this. They were a very good price for what was an unbelievable amazing performance. Franz is amazing on the piano and the singers, well blew me away. An emotional experience, their poise and confidence and talent is outstanding and by far one of the highlights of my trip to Florence. Thank... More

We had the opportunity to hear St. Mark's Opera perform great arias tonight. The program was well thought out and prepared and executed gloriously. The singers (Maurizio and Sara) are very strong and expressive and the chemistry between them in the duets was obvious. Franz was a jovial and effective master of ceremonies, accompanist and solo performer. We had such... More

As a lover of opera the chance to see some in Florence was irresistible! To add to that the chance to see La Boheme in such an intimate setting and with such a stellar cast combined to make for a fantastic evening. Congratulations to the host and cast for creating such a phenomenal event. This is a set up that... More

My 10 year old son and I thoroughly enjoyed the Opera at St. Mark's Church in Florence. The entire experience is one that we will always cherish.
