Splendid evening of opera

Good but disappointed

This performance was not exactly what I was expect. It was good and the performers did a great job. But the description inferred it would involve multiple singers and certain songs. But instead it was one piano player and one singer that did the entire performance. I want to give them the benefit of the doubt since everything was reopening after covid - so I will say I believe this would be a good event if more singers participate. The church was an interesting place for the performance.

Short and sweet

Just two fine musicians and an audience of nine made for an intimate performance in the atmospheric church of Santa Monica. Italian operatic arias alternated with piano solos making (only) 45 minutes of sweet music. Very enjoyable.

Lovely music

This was a lovely thing to do after a nice evening meal. I thought the length of time of the concert was just right. Small, intimate and lovely setting inside the church. Both the singer and the pianist were very good. Only two very small things to mention... firstly, it was difficult to get in as the front doors were locked and there weren’t any clear signs that this was the right venue. Eventually someone heard me rattle the door and came to let me in. Also, I completely appreciate being ‘in the moment‘ to enjoy the music and that taking photos and videos throughout the concert would have been a distraction; however, it would have been nice to have had a photo opportunity of the performers at the end.

My wife and me had a fantastic evening. We had a meal before going to the performance. It really felt personal and a privilege to listen to such talented performers in that close and beautiful surround. I thoroughly recommend this experience as somebody who is not an opera aficionado.

If the piano player had met the level of the singers...
Family-from-Germany

Special setting in the old church, sometimes traffic noise can be heard. The singers were overwhelming and delivered a perfect performance, filling the room with their voices and acting sympathically. However, the piano player did not meet the level of his colleagues. This clearly reduced the joy of listening.
