About
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.

Outstanding--a "Can't Miss" evening in Florence!
Nov 2019
We had a great time seeing "Love Duets" and were going to see "The Barber of Seville" AND Love Duets (again) on our planned trip to Florence this May.

Unfortunately the Corona virus will cause us to push our trip back to 2021 but a couple of visits to St Marks will definitely be on the program!

By the way, a good day is to visit Pitti Palace, dine at 4 Leoni and polish it off with a performance at St Marks!

For Love Duets, 2 excellent opera singers are accompanied by piano and there is an explanation in english before each selection. There is a similar performance across town but there is no interaction with the crowd. At St Marks the performers don't just "sing," they are expressive and act out the parts. You don't have to love opera to enjoy the performance...and--be careful--you'll like opera a lot after this!

St Marks is a small venue seating less than 50 people, so you are up close and personal.

Superb. Must Experience in Florence
Feb 2020
This is an budget way of experiencing an opera in Florence, but it is an absolute superb experience. The performance is in a small church to small intimate audience. There is no need upgrade your tickets, but if you do you will be literally within touching distance of the performers. There is a narration in English at the start and in between acts which informs the novice opera goer. Prosecco served at the break. This was our first opera experience, and we have not stopped talking about it. A must experience when in Florence.

Small in scale but big in song
Feb 2020
St. Marks Church is a bit run down and cold, but the opera company, which performed La Traviata the night we attended, was anything but. Despite a small house possibly due to the worry over the coronavirus, the company displayed great talent and professionalism. Their singing was superb and their acting very good. The set was functional and the costumes beautiful. The sole, and minor negative, was the accompanist occasionally drowned out Violetta.

Perfect evening in Florence
Feb 2020
What a find! Great little venue with a top notch cast. Would be a great into opera for someone who wanted the experience. While the opera is in Italian they provide a superb narration before acts, so one isn't lost. No brainer, book a ticket!

Small and intimate close up opera
From start to finish the setting, music and singing was superb. Set in a small church, the acoustics were fabulous with the singers being touching distance away. An audience of approximately 30 people made the experience special and the fact that all proceeds go to charity was an added bonus. This was a highlight of our trip to Florence and I would highly recommend it.

Operatic Duets on St Valentine's eve.
Feb 2020
I saw that this was highly rated on Tripadvisor and its rating is justified. The performances were fun, sustained in high quality and effort (it cannot be easy doing "all the famous/well known bits" one after another after another. The pianist and speaker Frank Moser introduced most of the pieces and played impeccably all evening . I really would recommend this to all non opera buffs (like me) and it is unlikely to bore families. Go and enjoy and support their charitable work also.

We booked this this for our last evening in Florence on our honeymoon. I don't like opera but this exceeded our expectations. It was a taster of well known opera arias.

It is set in a lovely intimate Anglican church environment which added to the atmosphere.

The host was very engaging and the performers were marvellous.

The only downside was that there was a family either taking photos and videos but they were talked to at halftime and were asked to desist.

La Boheme
Feb 2020 • Couples
I have visited St Marks Anglican Church on many occasions to appreciate the operas and the concerts of Love Arias . Last evenings rendition of Puccini’s La Boheme was above and beyond my own expectations .
Each component was imbued with such creative energy and passion. Coupled with the intimate setting, the excellent acoustics and extraordinary and talented cast , the audience was treated to an evening they will not soon forget .
In addition this talented ensemble raises money at each performance for a community in Southeast India where the children depend on these funds fur their survival . Proof that in this ever changing world that there are angels that live among us . My heartfelt congratulations to Franz and Ilse Moser for their conscious energy and contributions to the betterment of life here in Firenze and internationally .
Don’t miss the opportunity to visit St Marks Anglican Church on Via Maggio in Firenze during your next visit .
There you will find a contemporary uplifting experience based on a timeless inspiring stories in music . Be uplifted. Music is life.
Thank you to Cristiano Manzoni, the most talented accompanist on piano , Veronica Sensorini as Mimi, Antonella Biondo as Musetta , Maurizio Marchini as Rodolpho , Franco Rossi as Marcello , Max Medero as Colline and Franz Moser as Alcindoro and as Narrator.
Don’t miss one of the finest examples of what makes Florence such a unique and special place . Evenings like this leave me hopeful that things will keep improving as long as we focus and support the great cultural resources at our disposal. Thank you to this fine and extremely talented troupe for last nite

Great evening out.
Jan 2020
The pianist and compere was talented and confident in both functions. A tenor and superb soprano sang well known, easy listening, Arias. Of course it's not a full opera but an excellent night of light entertainment. Highly recommended.
