Owner description: 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.

I came across this on tripadvisor while searching for something do to at night. Reservations were all done with Franz over email and very promptly. This is italian opera for english speakers, held at a small anglican church, dress is casual, but the quality of production is surprisingly high. That weeknight there must have been less than fifteen members in... More

Seeing an opera while on my impromptu trip to Florence was a must and after reviewing the other reviews didn't hesitate booking a VIP seat for the Marriage of Figaro. Very small and intimate opera, so the only benefit of a VIP seat was that you were front and center in the 1st three rows. My guesstimate is there are... More

I saw "Le nozze di Figaro" and loved the performance! Excellent singers, a terrific pianist and an amusing as well as informative introduction made the evening very special. Thank you Franz Moser and family for your extraordinary commitment!

I am a student studying abroad and saw The Marriage of Figaro. Im glad that I experienced the opera at this personal level rather than attending a large opera house that might have been overwhelming. The church is absolutely beautiful and gives the audience a nice yet curious setting to watch an opera at.

I've never been to an opera so don't have any comparison but had a delightful time at their production of La Traviata. I guess this is the opera version of "community theatre" but I found the signing to be so beautiful that it seems hard to believe those at opera house could be better. The operas are paired down to... More

Florence was a letdown, truth be known. Just too many people. I couldn't help feeling claustrophobic. The highlight was stumbling upon this opera, sitting quietly talking to fellow opera enthusiasts from all over the world, being transported by the showmanship of Franz, the ethereal voices of the singers, the suspense of the narrative within the performance. It was a decided... More

An intense experience with the singers within arm's length - even for people who have never been to an opera before. Something that every Florence visitor should pamper themselves with. Highly recommendable!

We had the privilege of attending a performance of Madame Butterfly on Saturday evening. Not sure what to expect we were pleasantly surprised - the venue was charming, the acoustics amazing and the singing out of this world. What a lovely experience whether you are a long time opera lover or completely new. I highly recommend this as a way... More
