Really lovely evening. Church was a wonderful setting and the whole experience was very enjoyable. The singers were excellent and the evening very well organised. The pianist was also excellent. It is a non profit making company who help a children's charity in Africa so another good reason to go. Thoroughly recommend it to others.

I have enjoyed evenings here in the past and find them a nice touch to a visit to Florence. Apparently, in addition to the regular operas, they twice a week have a program of love songs/arias from many operas. I will update this review once i have been, but i am very much looking forward to the experience.

We had looked at this venue online before our trip to Florence but were sceptical as the venue looked so small on the video. However, when we actually looked at the church we were immediately enchanted by the interior, which is larger than it appears on the video clip, and bought two tickets for that evening's performance of La Traviata....

We were recommended this by Friends, prior to coming to Italy. My Boyfriend and I (in our late 20's) were unsure, having never been to the Opera and not considering ourselves Opera fans. But our friend insisted we would like it and so we booked. And we are very glad we did. It was wonderful, Franz Moser who runs/ presents/... More

I booked 2 tickets for my wife and myself as we were visiting Florence on our honeymoon. The church is a very romantic, intimate setting. The performers were extremely talented and the whole performance was a pleasure to listen to. They perform for about 30 minutes then an interval then another 30 minutes, In the interval you are able to... More

Not being an opera buff I did not know what to expect. I was more than pleasantly surprised. The quality of the performance surpasse al expectations in n interesting building. The lady pianist was truly outstanding. An overall intersting experience, not just for the cognoscenti.

This was wonderful - even better than I expected. Its a small church with great acoustics. You can't get a bad seat. price is reasonable. The voices are wonderful! The man who introduces the acts is funny and charming. I love opera and found this to be more fun than seeing an opera in one of the giant opera houses.... More

You sit so close to the performers that you almost feel like you are a part of the production. The singers were good and we really enjoyed this. Went more than once.
