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.

We arrived in Florence and the first thing we saw at our hotel was a small poster advertising opera at St. Mark's. We booked online the next day as we had trouble getting through on the phone. Despite not leaving a message we received a callback and then an email. Very friendly service from the start. We turned up for... More

A most memorable evening. The voices, setting, ambiance of Carmen (performed on 3/24) have been magical. Listening to an opera in such an intimate setting allowed to actually feel the voices vibrate and see the facial expressions just at a few steps distance. Reservations, communications, and purchase of tickets have been impeccable. Heartfelt thanks to Franz Moser, whose patience and... More

We enquired a few months prior to our trip about seeing Madame Butterfly on 31/03/15 and from the very first email to the follow up subsequent to the performance, everything was flawless. We were advised we would have front row seats and we not only had front row seats, but the middle seats right in front of the performers. My,... More

An intimate and outstanding evening of first class opera with friendly hosts and Prosecco at the interval. Madam Butterfly was a triumph in a beautiful church, raising money for a worthy cause. Superb! I will remember it always.

This intimate setting is perfect for the classics of opera with great acoustics. It made our evening such an enjoyable one. The caliber of singers is first rate.

A lovely and informal evening in beautiful surroundings. We were made to feel very welcome, and the prosecco during the interval a nice touch. The performers were all outstanding, both for their singing and their acting, and the accompanying pianist wonderful too. We must not forget Franz Moser who was the very lively narrator and clearly plays a large part... More

In the intimate setting of St. Mark's church you can enjoy classic operas such as Carmen, La Traviata, La Boehme, and others. Each act is preceded by an entertaining explanation in English of the libretto of that act so you always know what is going to happen next. Looking around the audience I could see nothing but big smiles on... More

I have been coming to the Opera at St. Mark's over the past 7-8 years now and have always urged friends and family visiting Florence to book for an evening. The experience is quite unlike any other - you're sat very close, within arm's reach in the front, and the Opera is performed with minimal accompaniment in the centre of... More

I was a intern at the opera house, it was a very special experience. I had a chance to see the actors at the back stage, to learn how to run a show, and listen to the excellent performance for free at the back stage. For me, it's a unforgettable experience.
