St Mark's Anglican Church

Saint Mark's Anglican Church was established in 1881, constructed within a Neo-Renaissance Medici Palace once owned by Machiavelli. Rather austere in its exterior appearance, the church delights the eye with its rich interior. Ornate Venetian lamps and brass decorations hang from the archway before the grand white marble altar. Today, the church is an indispensable part of Florence’s cultural life, and a fitting tribute to Italy's national appreciation of arts and culture. It houses an opera company that regularly stages highly popular performances within the church. To see opera and listen to classical music in this church is a unique experience, as its stucture allows the viewers to sit close to the artists, and enjoy the magical atmosphere almost as if they were part of the show.

Giacomo Puccini

Giacomo Puccini was an Italian opera composer of the late 19th century. He was considered one of the greatest composers of the Italian Opera, second only to Verdi. His early works were characterised by features of the traditional 19th century romantic Italian opera. Later, his style developed into the realistic verismo style, which inspired him to write his most famous masterpieces and became one of the leading exponents of the style. His most renowned works La bohème (1896), Tosca (1900), Madama Butterfly (1904), and Turandot (1924), all are popular operas played in the most prestigious venues of the classical world.

    Bon accueil, sièges réservés et marqués à nos noms. Chaque acte de l'opéra présenté en détail et avec des notes d'humour. Artistes lyriques performants. Un peu près étant donné le peu d'espace entre la scène et les spectateurs. Soirée très agréable dans le cadre de cette jolie église.
