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.

I came across this quite accidentally and I booked tickets to see Love Duets been performed. This was my highlight in Florence. It's very personal with close access to the performers. Boy can they sing! They performed some of my favourite operatic songs. Such a lovely performance it's a must go! Mr. Moser at the piano was superb to listen... More

The Opera at St Mark's had been recommended by friends and so we booked tickets for the Love Duets. It was a wonderful experience. Who needs microphones or autotune? This was real (stunning) voices accompanied by exquisite piano playing in the beautiful church. Simple and very effective.

My husband and I had been out for dinner and on our way back, passed this lovely old church, which was hosting the St. Mark's Opera Programme that evening. We decided to purchase 2 tickets and attend. Small audience due to the size of church. Absolutely, worth it. They offered a selection of well known pieces from a few different... More

Excellent performance by Mr Moser on the grand piano, tenor David Righeschi and soprano's Claudia Marchi and Claudia Ciabattini. We loved it so much that we attended two concerts in one week. Our 8 year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed it as well. These concerts reinforced her interest in classical music even more. Highly recommended with an excellent atmosphere for all... More

Oh my.... This was the most special evening. During a super romantic holiday in Florence, we went to the love duets night here. Reasonably priced, and very intimate setting, I can't rate this highly enough. To hear nessum dorma, and o sole mio etc being performed right in front of you is something I'll never forget. I would personally refund... More

We were walking by and found this incredible place. We listened to 'Carmen', and everything was perfect: the atmosphere (the church is very small and cosy), the singers (so good, and so nice! just singing in front of you), the staff and the audience. Much cheaper than any opera, but even better. You can buy your ticket last minute and... More

My 8 and 10 year old made it through the whole show, which was just under two hours, and enjoyed it more than I could have imagined. Ask the unassuming young man who is ushering to show you a magic trick during intermission - he's amazing and happy to share his magic.

I was taken to the "Love Duets" as part of my birthday treat by my partner who is not at all keen on operas, but he was wowed by the experience. The incredibly talented tenor, David Righeschi, and mezzo-soprano Eva Mabellini, accompanied by pianist extraordinaire Franz Moser, provided a highly entertaining evening. The purity of their voices filled the church,... More

We saw the Barber of Seville and it was amazing! We were able to see an great opera with such talented singers and pianist so close up. The reservations were easy, prices were reasonable, and the venue is intimate. If you have two hours to spare in your evening in Florence, this is a great way to spend it after... More

We are ardent trip advisor travellers but somehow missed reviews on St Marks and came across it by chance. It was a great evening of "Love Duets"the setting is delightful and the pianist and singers excellent. It truly merits top rating.
