When we went in September 2017, there were several rotating programs of which the program featuring Puccini (as opposed to Mozart, other opera excerpts, Neapolitan songs, etc.) was featured. Since the artists likely rotate as well, I don't see much point in naming names but...More

The concert started promptly at 7.15 and the church was almost full. It cost €18 as we bought them in advance. We enjoyed a great concert of Mozart and Puccini - a tenor, a baritone and a pianist. Most enjoyable. We then walked back towards...More

The singers we're good and the venue was attractive. What let this down for me was the fact the audience was allowed to film the concert on their phones. As there is no rake to the audience seating half the time all I could see...More

Wow! I can't say enough about this. If you appreciate music you must make a point of allowing one hour of your evening to watch this. Incredible!

This type of event could become too long, too touristy and gimmicky but it is not like that at all; indeed it is the perfect length so that one doesn't become too cold in the large church, bored by the opera or desperate to get...More
