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

My husband and I went to an opera on a Tuesday night. The church is nothing fancy, especially when you consider it's competition in Florence. The singing was very good, the actors were entertaining. They completed the opera with an overview to each act and they sang the important song from the act. We sat on the side of the... More

It was indeed a great opera but our view was blocked. The performance however, was amazing. It's worth it to pay the extra euros to sit in the front or book early.

This was our first taste of live Opera and what an introduction. After a very warm welcome the performance was absolutely first class. A very intimate venue, our front row seats put us within touching distance of the singers. Miki Shibahara as Madame Butterfly gave a very emotional performance and Cristiano Manzoni accompanying on the piano was absolutely superb. This... More

My wife and myself went to Opera at St. Mark's Anglican Church the Thursday 10th of July 2014 to see the "Traviata". It was so impressive and so well played!! We enjoyed everything, from the start to the end of the performance!! We were sitting on the first line of chairs, close to the personages. The church is beautiful and... More

Amazing Church, Carmen' s voice and personage was terrible! Her tune always low and her face always angry. Carmen must be amazing and full of live!!

I went to a perfotmance of 'Love Duets' at St Marks with my husband and his parents while we were visiting Florence. We were lucky to book tickets just the day before, and we had a marvellous night. The atmosphere at St Marks was intimate amd friendly, and the organisers of the event were very accommodating. In rhis beautiful setting... More

With a cast of five and a piano this was never going to be Covent Garden or even Garsington. The story is stripped to the essential so no sub plots. The church is fascinating ultra high Anglican and surely not the most comfortable or best sight lines. Our allotted seats were so so, so we were grateful that we could... More

Very good experience. Great singing and portrayal of characters. Good show with space available. Highly recommend. Would advise getting tickets earlier so you can get a better seat, saying that, we bought tickets on the day in Florence so no need to book via email (as I tried to do) I suppose.

We saw Carmen, it was brilliant. 2.5 hours and it felt like it flew by. The opera singers were amazing, not just fantastic voices but also superb acting. I would recommend you take in the opera here when you visit Florence.
