We booked this little jaunt on Trip Advisor as it was cheaper than booking it straight on the opera website in Florence. The concert started at 2100 and lasts approx 70 mins or so. A lot of good restaurants open at 1900, so you either have to be in one bang as they open or find one that opens earlier as you know in Italy eating is a passion and you could easily over run the dinner and be late for the concert. On our travels we found the church beforehand it has two names Santa Monaca and Santa Monika. The church is in a terrace of buildings and is nothing to shout home about but the acoustics are very good and after all you are here to listen to the music. You can purchase a drink before the start of the concert for reasonable money, I think a glass of wine was 5 Euros we did not imbibe as we were full from our very nice meal. The music and singing was very good with an accomplished pianist and a beautiful singer. Although they are very skilled in what they do, there is no showmanship a little more introduction on the music and songs they sing and may be a little history of the composer, not much maybe a minute talk and then this would put the icing on the cake. This is not a grand opera with a dress code and all that comes with it but all the same it is well worth going to see my wife and I enjoyed it, leave the kids at home.

Let's get the negative out of the way first. The church was not easy to find. Well, at least based on my cab driver who couldn't even find it with his GPS. And while I like being early to my reservations, I arrived at the church exactly at 9:15 - the scheduled starting time. I;m clad I didn;t miss a single note.
The church is quite small and I suppose there were about 10 rows of 9 seats across. Even arriving at the last moment I was able to get a seat in the 2nd row. It's open seating, There were maybe 35-40 people in the audience.
On the night I attended there were 2 singers, a Baritone and a Soprano. Each came out to perform separately and at the end of each half of the performance they sang a duet. And they had wonderful voices. The intimate nature of the venue added a bit of echo to their voices ... to great effect!
There were selections from Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni as well as selections from Puccini and Rossini. And while I'm not a huge opera fan, many of the selections were somewhat familiat to me.
Aside from a 10 minute intermission there was a piano interlude by the wonderful pianist who accompanied the singers. And he was excellent as well.
I'm not sure this type of activity is great for younger children. The was a young girl in front of me who would cover her ears each time one of the singers voices went into the upper registers. Plus; the entire program is in Italian so their attention might waver.
It was a wonderful evening that I recommend highly!

The performance was good, but the advertising is deceptive and it’s expensive. We paid at the door. €25 is too much for what you get. €15 would be about right. We thought, based on the advertising including a picture, that there would be three sopranos singing. There was only one. Also the information indicated a performance of 1hr 10 minutes, but it barely clocked in at an hour. It’s clearly marketed at tourists who will go ahead and pay premium to hear a little opera singing. The venue is nice, the sound good, and both the soprano and the pianist did a fine job. But tell us what we’re going to get and charge an appropriate price.
The ticket taker opened the front door of the church during the interval and smoked with no regards that the smoke was getting in.

What a wonderful experience. The ladies were fantastic. Pianist played beautifully. One pianist and four singers. Church location was on a small street and not is a plaza. But we found it. Old small church. Concert starts at 9:15 and ends at after 10. Being it ended later in the evening we were concerned that the walk back to our hotel be a concern. Not knowing the area and all. But the restaurants and bars were very busy and of no concern walking in areas we were not familiar with.
Wine was available during intermission. The people I saw with a drink left their drinks on the floor. They were not impressed with it.

Absolutely fantastic. We both enjoyed the church building, and the wonderfully talented singers and the piano player. The only downside for us was it only lasted one and a half hours. We both wanted it to continue. If you like intimate settings with great opera snippets you will enjoy this experience. 10 out of 10 for us
