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.

Our first opera experience could not have been better! I booked tickets for La Bohème after reading reviews on here. We decided to go via the church before dinner, to make sure we knew where we were going and check our tickets were there. Unfortunately, there had been a problem with the booking and we didn't have seats and it... More

We paid full price plus booking fee to see Carmen only to be disappointed to the max. This should be advertised as opera and the tickets are overpriced. We did not even get complimentary drinks (the show sells drinks in between acts). We left the show during the intermission because it was painful to watch. Acting was poor, amateur extras... More

I am so glad that I reserved tickets for this. They were a very good price for what was an unbelievable amazing performance. Franz is amazing on the piano and the singers, well blew me away. An emotional experience, their poise and confidence and talent is outstanding and by far one of the highlights of my trip to Florence. Thank... More

We had the opportunity to hear St. Mark's Opera perform great arias tonight. The program was well thought out and prepared and executed gloriously. The singers (Maurizio and Sara) are very strong and expressive and the chemistry between them in the duets was obvious. Franz was a jovial and effective master of ceremonies, accompanist and solo performer. We had such... More

As a lover of opera the chance to see some in Florence was irresistible! To add to that the chance to see La Boheme in such an intimate setting and with such a stellar cast combined to make for a fantastic evening. Congratulations to the host and cast for creating such a phenomenal event. This is a set up that... More

My 10 year old son and I thoroughly enjoyed the Opera at St. Mark's Church in Florence. The entire experience is one that we will always cherish. The venue is terrific and the performers are fabulous! My 10 year old son was beaming the entire time and he could not stop talking afterwards about the experience. Franz and IIse provide... More

My experience at St. Mark’s was both new and very exciting. After having seen operas in larger opera houses, it was a refreshing change to watch La Traviata in such an intimate space. The voices were spectacular and the best part was that we got to experience it so close to the action. The stage was almost among the audience... More

The Marriage of Figaro performance at St Mark's was opera at its best and most intimate....performers just a few feet away in full costume and professionally staged even with limited space and props.Virtuoso performances by all and not to laud the pianist who accompanied the two hour performance would be unforgivable..performed in Italian but each act is introduced in English...

We saw La Boheme at St Mark's and it was an excellent and unique evening of opera. The setting of the church makes for a very intimate performance, especially if you're in the front row, as we were. Not a 'high-tech' venue with English sub-titles throughout, but actually they weren't needed with Franz' witty and clear summaries between each act.... More

We treated a guest to her first opera experience and she loved it. As always at St Mark's, the performances in excellent. Our guest experienced a beautiful beginning to opera. Extremely well produced. The operas are edited because it's a small church, with piano accompaniment. Nevertheless the company is very professional and its a charming location.
