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.

The opera in Florence is wonderful!

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.

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.

I booked this on Valentine's Day for my husband and daughter who is in Florence studying abroad from the US. Thought it would be a good way to experience an opera without committing to something I wasn't sure I would enjoy. Only way to describe it was fabulous! Very talented singers and even though I didn't understand any of the... More

Me and my girlfriend attended the La Boheme show on Feb 14th 2015 ( Valentines day!) and what a great show. Very nice setting in a small church just off the main road and a very intimate setting. The opera singing was great and being in such a small venue it felt as though you were taking part in the... More

We've just come from seeing Carmen here. What a lovely, intimate venue, just across the Arno from the Renaissance centre. I booked online from the UK before we left home. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our seats that had our name on them on a printed label. This was halfway between a full opera and a concert performance... More

My boyfriend (who had never been to florence before) and I had the opportunity to see Madam Butterfly in the beautiful St Marks. We both loved it and for us, who had never been to an opera before it was great. There was a brief English interpretation for each act which helps to break down barriers. I would thoroughly recommend... More

We can't recommend this enough !! In an intimate setting with astounding accounstics and performers whose every word evoked a powerful emotional response, this is a personal experience for opera lovers and non-opera lovers alike.. two hours of heaven with a glass of Prosecco in the middle .. perfect, thank you !

Going to St Marks English Church, which is a treat in itself, on a coldish, dark night in February, was brightened immensely by the warm welcome that awaited us at the door. We had booked tickets over email, which was a mutual trust thing. I hadn't paid a bean, and wasn't sure my second row tickets would be waiting. They... More
