We were weclomed outside at the door by our charming host and lead through to the venue. Although there were only three performers, pianist, male tenor and female surprano they filled the church with the most beautiful music. The free wine served at the intermission was excelent, some of the best we had in Rome. It was such a shame that, with us, there were only five people in the audience. I would highly recomend it to anyone.

An intimate, emotional opera performance by amazing singers. Definitely recommend and worth every penny. If anything, they could charge at least a little more! Thank you for a lovely evening.

Very enjoyable performance in comfortable small theatre. The musicians and singers were very professional and entertained us with a good selection of recognisable Italian classical music.

An extraordinary team. Voices and acoustics at the top. We highly recommend this outing!

Great atmosphere in a small theatre. Excellent performers!
