When I was looking for opera performances to attend during my recent trip, I could not find one for the theater I went to 10 years ago. I saw that St. Mark's gave performances and saw the wonderful reviews online. I admit, I was a bit skeptical, but I really wanted to see an opera. I reserved one ticket for Carmen online about two weeks before my trip. I received a prompt response that they received my request and all was set. What a wonderful experience! Do not let the venue dissuade you - it actually adds to the performance. Having the performers so close pulls you into the opera! Each performer had wonderful voices and rivaled those I have seen in bigger venues. I actually had goosebumps a couple of times. I enjoyed it so much, that as soon as I arrived at my hotel after Carmen, I sent a request for the next night's performance - Love Duets. It was equally enjoyable. Yet again, I decided to go a third night and saw La Traviata. Franz (who manages the performances and was the pianist for the Duets performance) is so kind and funny. I believe his wife helps with ticketing and was so cheerful and welcoming. Being a solo traveler, it gave me a wonderful reason to be out at night. Whenever I visit Florence again, I will be sure to get a ticket for at least one performance. Bravo, Opera at St. Mark's, you are all stars.
