Owner description: 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.

“Need to do in Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

A magical evening with wonderful Opera and piano playing. Whether you like opera or not .. This is an evening you'll never forget. Franz (the host) guided us through the evening in a fantastic way. The evening not too long or too short. Definitely worth it!

“Barber of Seville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We recently went to see The Barber of Seville at St. Mark's. What a delightful evening! The performers are trained opera singers who were clearly enjoying themselves, and the setting was intimate and relaxed. I highly recommend the Opera at St. Mark's for a great time and a good cause -- as they use it raise money for an orphage in India. IT was a highlight of our time in Florence.

When you book your ticket, see if you can request a seat that directly faces the stage, which is the altar area. Our seats were on the side -- not idela for seeing all the action, but still quite close.

“A night of Opera”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

What a wonderful experience!! The music and singing was just wonderful, and as for the setting, was just something to always remember on my trip to Florence. The performance wasnt too long, and a great variety. A must for any classical music buff.

“Excellent evening in a beautiful church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

A group of 8 friends we enjoyed the Opera in this lovely church. Singing was fantastic as was the piano playing. Staff were very helpful. Wine available for purchase for charity at the interval. All in all a reasonably priced nice evening out.
