Owner description: 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 recently attended St. Mark's for a performance of The Barber of Seville. The church setting definately adds to the atmosphere and the proximity of the performers to the drama of the experience. The performance was very enjoyable, both tender and funny. The 5 cast were excellent singers and actors.However for me the star of the show was the very dashing pianist, who provided the sole musical accompaniment for the entire show. Booking was a simple proceedure, just an e-mail to Franz secured the seats and we paid on the night.

I read about the opera on Tripadvisor in February after I booked my tickets to Florence and couldn't wait to write and reserve tickets for my husband and I to see La Boheme in May!

This was our first opera, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The performers were top notch (to us amateurs anyways), and the experience very intimate. The "stage" is the space in front of the alter, with seats set up around it. We were lucky to get first-row seats and could literally touch the performers' clothes! One of the lead singers looked straight at me a couple of times during the performance and when they were bowing, which just added a lovely personal touch to the already amazing performance.

Proceeds from the opera also support Amala Children's Home in South-East-India, which i thought made the money spent that much more worth it.

A unique musical event to spend part of an evening. Proceeds support orphanage in so. India, so money well spent for great singing AND philanthropic contribution.
