The area
Address
Neighborhood: Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.

We know this church quite well because we have been there several times for different occasions in the past.
And each time it was a pleasant experience.
Located in the central via Nazionale, a stone's throw from the Repubblica metro station, the Anglican Church of St. Paul within the Walls, was built between 1873 and 1880 by the English architect George Edmund Street on behalf of the Reverend Robert J. Nevin.
The church was built in Romanesque-Gothic style with a facade characterized by red bricks that alternate with travertine.
The interior has three naves with light filtering through the windows where scenes from the life of the saint are drawn.
The apse is covered with a mosaic designed by Edward Burne-Jones which depicts various scenes from the Apocalypse of the evangelist John and the faces of the fathers of the Church borrowed from historical figures such as Abraham Lincoln and General Grant of the American Civil War.
Built in 1873, it was the first non-Catholic Roman church to be built in the center of Rome and has always hosted classical music concerts, given its refined acoustics. Probably closed at this time for Covid, it is definitely worth a visit when it reopens.

I and friends have been to see the three tenors twice now and this time went to the Grand Opera two weeks ago, which was excellent . However I only mark this as a 3 * as we paid £50.00 each which was £200.00 in total and discovered when we went to the toilet facilities they were a health hazard, extremely filthy and I would not keep pigs in the gents and was informed by my friend the ladies was disgusting. The show fantastic ,but you don't charge those prices and provide toilet facilities that are not fit for purpose. This let the whole thing down. I am sorry to have to write this,but someone needs to get this sorted.

on planning my trip to Italy, I found an opera (La Traviata) being staged here on the Saturday night that we were there. It was absolutely magic to see and hear an opera staged in a gorgeous old church. Would definitely recommend this as an experience for anyone who likes opera...or, really, just anyone!!

Got tickets for the opera night, hoping to enjoy it.

The orchestra consisted of a string quartet and a piano. The piano player was making multiple mistakes, messing up the tempo for everyone, and generally killing the entire experience. Strings couldn't decide if they should follow the piano, or keep up the tempo, so everything just... unraveled.

With singers, it got worse. None of the three (tenor, soprano, baritone) had the range for the pieces (Barber of Sevillia and Traviata - come on, it's the basics!), so they compensated by huge fortes where they could sign, and near-non-existent pianos when they couldn't.

We were seated in the middle of a row, so we could not walk out politely until intermission. Worst hour of my time in Rome.

Beautiful music experience in Rome. We went there on Tuesday the 8 September and had dinner before the event at Cotto Ristaurant in Via Torino. Good food (3 course menu) with a glass of water, wine and coffee included. But the highlight of the evening was the music! Great ensemble, enthusiastic conductor and good voices.

This is a great little church right on Via Nationale and near the Termini Station. It has great music concerts on weekends that are really inexpensive. The sound quality is very good and the church is beautiful. Very friendly. Great opera!

Just in case you find yourself at a loose end towards a sunday or wednesday evening then try and make it to this place for a very special musical evening. It's almost hard to miss this place (it's on the Via national towards the top end heading towards the termini) but the queue of people hanging outside at about 7:45pm does give it away. The evening is a collection of arias performed by a small but perfectly formed orchestra (look out for the double bass player, he's hillarious) and a group of pretty good singers in "authentic" costumes, the music is performed with humour and accomplishment and is in such a lovely setting that its worth the wait and is a perfect end if you've been rushed off your feet all day with sightseeing. Tickets are 30euros and the full set lasts about 1 and half hours.
Be aware that there are two queues... one is to get in, the other is to buy tickets, it is on a first come, first sit basis, so if you don't get in the line quick enough then you could find yourself towards the back.

The acoustics in this small church are fantastic - we saw/heard La Traviata, and it was excellent. Make sure the taxi driver understands that it is St. Paul's WITHIN THE WALLS - ours didn't and we were late, but were allowed to enter and found seats. A real treat.

After reading a few reviews of the small venue I decided this would be a good introduction to opera for the kids (ages 12 and 10). And what better place to see La Triviata than Rome! Considering our limited travel wardrobe, tuxedos and gowns were not in the cards. Spontaneity at its best! THE OKAY: The church is not air-conditioned and the seats are padded pews as in, not very comfortable, but THE GREAT: you’ll be closer to the action than you would imagine possible! And the performers were excellent. AND you can get great gelato across the street at Verde Pistachio.

This church hosts a number of concerts from operas to classical concerts in the heart of Roma. Trying to see an opera play or concert is an intimate, unmissable experience if you want to enjoy a classical entertainment in the center of Rome. The church is located just across the street from Teatro dell'Opera di Roma, a very short walk from Repubblica metro station.

This was our first night in Rome and we were lucky to catch an opera aria "The Three Tenors" (held every Friday evenings). Inspired by the popular "Three Tenors" concerts given by Pavarotti, Domingo and Carreras, the evening was packed with lots of Italians and tourists, the church was a full-house. The 90 minutes program features performances by three talented Italian opera veterans singing famous opera arias back to back from Tosca, La Traviata including the famous song Nessun Dorma accompanied by a small string and piano orchestra with a magnificent altar backdrop. A free tasting of Limoncello during the intermission was a nice and sweet touch. Best experience ever!

Tickets can be purchased through different distribution channels including Opera E Lirica. Just look up under keywords The Three Tenors and St Paul's Within the Walls in Roma. Try and reserve good seats closer to the stage (2nd/3rd or even the first row!).

ローマ初日に19世紀に建てられた教会でテノール歌手によるオペラのコンサートが観れたのは一番の想い出です。毎週金曜日の夜に開催されているこのオペラコンサートは必見です。コンサート名は「ザ・スリー・テナーズ」。ベテランテノール歌手が名曲を唄う90分間のプログラムで、スピーカーやマイクもなく、バイオリン・チェロとピアノの小さなオーケストラというシンプルな設定なのに、荘厳な教会の祭壇前のステージは見事なコンサートホールに早変わりします。この日は満員御礼で、海外からの旅行客も最前列で聴き入ってました。ローマ歌劇場などの立派な会場でのオペラ鑑賞ももちろん最高ですが、教会の中で行われるコンサートの気軽さもぜひ体験いただきたい。チケットの値段も最良席で40€~50€と比較的お手頃です(最前列~2列目ぐらいまでのお席がおすすめ)。ネットで予約してから行かれることをお勧めします。
