Nice bit of evening music.

This was a nice way to hear a little bit of opera-singing while you're in Italy. There are not three sisters, as the photo would suggest. On the night we went, there was one singer and one pianist accompanying her. It was a hot day in Florence and a hot night in the old church, which is a bit shabby as it's not used as a church anymore. Only one fan was blowing, and we were lucky to grab seats next to it. The 5-Euro plastic wine glasses of chianti were a sweet touch, if a bit pricey for what they were. The music was simple, and the singer clearly took her work seriously as she belted out classic opera pieces.

Both the pianist and the mezzo/soprano were excellent. They performed a mix of pieces, most I was familiar with- nice to hear in a smaller setting.

The soprano has a lovely voice and terrific technique, but the venue was too small for her voice. The pianist seemed bored and rushed through his solo pieces, though he is obviously a very good player.

Lovely small venue so you were right in-front if the singers. All the musicians were amazing but especially the pianist. The theatrical element from the singers was particularly enjoyable. The recital was quite short - just over an hour including interval but this is a great introduction to some of the main opera arias

What a great experience! Wonderful opera singers in a very intimate environment. Long enough to give us a sense of an opera, short enough to keep us on the edge of out seat. Very professional highly recommend

Late evening event - a portfolio of songs from various operas with an excellent pianist and an outstanding mezzo-soprano performing in a church with really good acoustics. Around an hour of very enjoyable entertainment - more than worth the ticket price. Only downside -- no rest rooms available for the audience; that is not good enough in 2022.

Lenny’s (the soprano) singing was outstanding and the guy playing the piano also excellent. A lovely end to our stay in Florence - we loved it, and the acoustics and setting in the church was perfect.
