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

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.

My husband organised a trip to see La Boheme for my birthday. Lovely singing in an intimate setting.

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.

Super intimate, lovely setting. Very different experience from a big opera house but just as good if not better in some ways. Excellent & professional singing and pianist. A wonderful evening & they even had paper fans to help stay cool. Well worth the short walk over the Ponte Trinita and all proceeds go to charity. Highly recommend!

We did a dinner and Opera. The church is small but makes the experience very intimate. The singers were outstanding, amazing voices.

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
