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

Wow wow this was the most perfect setting and as it was my introduction to opera I can only say this was sensational. Thank you to the dedicated team who put this on. Highly recommend if you are in Florence and there is a performance at this church.... definitely check it out.

This is an experience not to be missed. From the outside St Mark's Anglican Church is not remarkable as it is one of a row of detached buildings, however once we stepped inside we were entranced by its beauty. Booking couldn't have been easier - we simply emailed and received an immediate reply from Franz who reserved seats for us.... More

It's more a recital of the most famous parts of some operas but it's very enjoyable. The church is small and absolutely gorgeous so the singers are never far from you. A real treat !

Firstly, a big thank you to all those who had previously posted on Tripadvisor about this fantastic evening. Without these reviews I don't think we would have been so lucky to experience this well organised event. The venue was excellent and the seats were angled such that we could all see the performers, a pity that the church wasn't full.... More

We enjoyed the evening with the cozy setup in the church and the front seat is surely an added value. Franz was very helpful in the booking and presented the concert very well. The sopranos performance was awesome! I recommend this cozy opera to the mass as it is both amusing and entertaining.

A most remarkable venue for an evening in Florence. Little St Marks Church is a gem. The performers are outstanding and it is so special being so close to the performance. We watched La Boheme and for any first time opera goers it was narrated perfectly so that everything was understood. We thoroughly recommend an evening at St Mark's.

What a fantastic evening, as an introduction to live opera this is a must for anyone looking for a superb evening out whilst in Florence. Will definitely be re-visiting next time we're back in Tuscany!

Thoroughly enjoyed the Love Duets concert. Wonderfully intimate, in fact as it was very much off-peak in Florence the church wasn't even at half capacity, which was a shame in some ways. Would really recommend this to anyone who enjoys opera, but it also serves as a bite size introduction to those who are less familiar with it. And a... More

In a beautiful palazzo you will find a 125 years old English Church, that apart from serving the pastoral needs ( the church is good known for a Sung Mass every Sunday) organize the complete opera performances slightly adapted to suit the church with 4-7 professional singers accompanied by a virtuoso pianist . On the day we went in it... More

The atmosphere in the church between the actors and us, the audience, was amazing, especially because of the intimacy created by the seating. The performance was absolutely incredible; the way they used their voices; the way they expressed their feelings through their acting; the way they sounded and performed together, absolutely mind-blowing.
