Mediocre and unenthusiastic musicians. Overpriced, especially “VIP” seats. Not even a paltry effort to give tourists a quality experience.

After a very long day- up at 3am to catch the flight to Pisa , then on to Florence and sightseeing, we were looking forward to sitting and listening to this evening concert in St Stephens Auditorium. (Pre booked)
The programme was pacherbel’s Canon, Air by JS Bach, Night Music by Mozart and the highlight , Vivaldi’s 4 seasons. Spell binding. The 6 artists ( the orchestra da camera Fiorentina) were amazing and gave an outstanding performance. Would recommend.

How cool it is to have experienced a concert like this in Florence, Italy. I am certain the opera officionadoes will be critical of the Three Tenors performance, but for a casual listener it will be magical!

I chose to go because I was taken by the idea of enjoying some music in a Florentine church - what's more the reviews were good so I thought it would be a pleasant enough experience. Unfortunately it was anything but.

The first thing you notice is that the photo advertised shows a full baroque orchestra - instead we had a string quintent (there's nothing wrong with quintets, but it's definitely a far cry from what was advertised).

Then they started playing. My initial reaction was to find the unfolding performance humorous, but the comedic effect faded when I remembered I'd paid €45. (Tickets went for €35 - €55 depending on seat selection).

The performance was riddled with mistakes - woefully out of tune and out of time with each other. The lead violinist rushed through the music like he couldn't wait to leave. In the meantime another member of the ensemble spent the entire time squinting at their part like they'd never seen it before. When their part was exposed all you heard was quiet scratching leaving gaping, uncomfortable holes in the music.

I wasn't expecting a stellar performance. But I was shocked to see an ensemble that had clearly never even bothered to learn their parts or rehearse. Considering that these musicians are getting paid as "professionals", what they presented demonstrated a complete lack of integrity, professionalism and pride.

I sat through this right up until the second last movement of the 4 seasons when I realised I could leave instead of sitting there reluctantly applauding.

Top tip, skip this and enjoy the (talented and entertaining) street musicians by night.

We went to a 3 Tenors concert here and thoroughly enjoyed the quality of the singers and of the musicians. The singers were all of opera quality, with the older/stockier guy a cut above the others. The concert was just long enough, and we were able to have a 7PM dinner a few blocks away before the concert. The acoustics of the hall were wonderful. The concert was entitled 'Nessun Dorma' and we were very disappointed that they did not sing that particular area during the program.

Just happened upon this performance of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons while we were walking around Florence. Got last minute tickets and were very glad that we went. Terrific performance. The venue is relatively small and our "inexpensive" seats in the 3rd section were great. Don't see reason to have spent twice as much to sit in the front section.

The Tenors were excellent. The temperature however, was in the 90's outside and this venue is not air conditioned. I cannot recommend attending events here if it is hot outside as this is the most uncomfortably hot indoor entertainment venue I have ever been in. Our tickets were not cheap, but we left at intermission as the venue did not cool off even as it got later in the evening. It had to be in the 80's in this building and there was no air circulating. Regrettable. Had I been aware that this building did not get cool, I would have cancelled our tickets the day before. Absolutely miserable experience.

We went yesterday August 4 2019. This "experience" is nothing more than an expensive tourist trap. You arrive up the steps of this church to the ticket box and notice the run down appearance, however, it's 13 euros!, must be pretty great. DO NOT GET THE VR OPTION. (The Davinci museum is only 7 euro, right?) You go around to the side, where there's kind of a bookstore, and then down into an area where there's a few of DaVinci's models, and a run down VR section, basically a few stools and VR headsets. You feel kind of odd, like hmm.. that's it? and there are some steps up into the church.. where you get the experience!! Oh, my. a few sparse benches, and the inside of a church with projection screens all over, projecting his paintings and such with a ridiculous dramatic soundtrack. You're kind of over the whole thing about five minutes in.. and you look around at all the other suckers and think, well, that was $30 poorly spent. Avoid, avoid, avoid.
