    This was our 2nd Opera, and may I say was just as impressive we loved every minute and it was at a perfect time as we had a lovely meal after, only one problem getting to the place by 6pm — the traffic was mad!

    This was a wonderful concert. It was more than I expected. The singers were engaging and their voices were excellent. The pianist was excellent as well. The length of time was perfect and the well as the song selections. I would highly recommend a concert such as this while visiting Rome.

    The musicians were extra extraordinaty!!! Amazing. We had such a great time. The Tenor was lovely but the Sopran was just amazing. The three of them (along side the organ player) created a very special evening for us.

    The performance was outstanding. Both singers and the pianist were brilliant!! I especially loved Adriano Gentili, the tenor, who has the most amazingly beautiful voice. I saw this performance last year and came back to Italy especially to see it again. I have been so excited all year about coming to this concert. It was wonderful. So much talent. I do hope I can come again one day. I had the best evening ever. The best hour of my year so far!!

    Outstanding performance in an outstanding venue. In the past this church was hardly ever open. I am glad they are making use of the sacristy. Also having the performance at a more reasonable hour allows for a late dinner on this square or another square close by.
