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.

This is more a soiree than a typical opera in a theatre and it is important to bear this in mind to avoid disappointment. This meant that there was a small intimate audience in a beautiful church. There was a piano rather than an orchestra but this was OK in these circumstances. What made the evening great was the quality... More

I took my wife and a couple of friends to this and we all loved it. The church is a great place for the show and it's a great experience. There really isn't much I can add that all of the other reviews say.

I hesitate to write a review for an art form that apparently I generally don't like, but think that others in a similar situation might profit from the contents. We took a family vacation to Italy and wanted to inject a dose of culture into a few of the evenings. While in Rome, we attended a presentation of opera arias,... More

Attended a performance here whilst on a tour of Tuscany! We go to operas in each city we visit and this was out of this world! So close to the performance you felt every emotion possible! Definitely worth a visit if you love opera! It's a different experience! However, for the price of the ticket.. We did expect to be... More

A Dutch pianist, Italian opera singers, the English Church in Florence, wonderful music from around the continent, the EU come to life! The space is so intimate, the accoustics excellent and the singers only three or four feet away.A truly joyous occasion, clearly talented performers but ones who were enjoying themselves and enjoying the interaction with the audience.A truly memorable...

An intimate occasion ,we could have touched the cast,they stand within reach in an area cleared in the centre of the church. So easy to book on line ,pay at the door (cash only) and you are escorted to a seat with your name on it. All the cast were of a very high standard . We were there for... More

An opera is FAR from my comfort zone but there was no way I would go to Italy and not go to an opera! First off - you have to email Franz (I believe he's the person in charge of the show?) at the email provided on the website. Just let him know you would like to attend and how... More

A lovely evening of Love duets with a soprano, tenor and pianist. All were very talented and engaged the small audience. No snobby opera, even organized a sing-a-long in which the audience displayed very poor skills and I think entertained the performers. If you want an evening of something a little different in a beautiful setting I would highly recommend... More

The opera, Carmen, at St Mark's was both professional and intimate. Sitting in the front row was just inches from the performers which enhanced the atmosphere. It was extemely well performed and each of the four acts were humorously introduced. All receipts goto charity.
