- Thoroughly enjoyable in an intimate setting. The cast performed beautifully, and made you feel part of the show. Highly recommended!

- This was a great way to see Carmen. The pianist was outstanding as a one man band. Carmen was good but Micaela was better. The lady playing one of Carmen's friends (Frasquita?) was a scene stealer both with her voice but also the way she communicated with her expressions. (That she was gorgeous didn't hurt.) The intimate setting ensured that no one in the small audience could have failed to feel part of the show.

About the Event
Georges Bizet's 'Carmen', with its libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy, is among the most famous compositions in the repertoire! The opera in four acts will be performed by four singers in costumes, accompanied by piano, in the intimate setting of the Anglican Church of Florence.
The soldier Don José helps Carmen to escape from prison, because he has fallen in love with the beautiful gypsy. But, his love brings him into difficulties, because Escamillo, the famous bull fighter, is also madly in love with Carmen. Finally, Don José stands caught between two woman and two social classes - the thrilling outsider Carmen on one side, and loyal Micaela on the other side.
Each act will be explained in English.
