Chiesa di S. Paolo entro le Mura

The 'Church of St. Paul within the Walls' was the first non-Catholic church built in Rome after Italy's unification. The church was built between 1873 and 1880 as an Anglican Basilica in the district of Castro Pretorio, Via Nazionale, Rome. Constructed in the Gothic Revival style, the distinctive external facade is characterised by alternating red and limestone bricks. Four spectacular mosaics by the English pre-Raphaelite Edward Burne-Jones, in collaboration with William Morris, are the crowning glory of the church's interior. The eagle-eyed will spot several famous nineteenth-century figures among those representing the fathers of the church in the elaborate mosaics, among them the artist himself, notable donors and their families, and Abraham Lincoln, Giuseppe Garibaldi and General Grant among the 'Christian Warriors'. Many delightful classical events are hosted in this location, including performances of popular operas like La Traviata.

Giuseppe Verdi

Giuseppe Verdi was an Italian opera composer. From a young age, he developed a musical education with the help of a patron and soon dominated the Italian opera. In fact by his 30s, he became one of the most influential opera composer all over the classical scene. His most famous operas are Il Trovatore, Rigoletto and La Traviata. Furthermore, he was able to establish himself as a landowner with the income from his successful operas and focus on his private life. However, he soon returned to the scene with his new popular work Aida (1871), and three masterpieces: Otello, Requiem and Falstaff.

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.

Gaetano Donizetti

Gaetano Donizetti was an Italian composer of the early 19th century. He was one of the leading composers of the bel canto opera style along with Gioachino Rossini and Vincenzo Bellini. Over the course of his career, Donizetti wrote almost 70 operas both comic and serious. His first notable success came with a serious opera, Zoraida di Granata, which was presented in 1822 in Rome. As a result, he made a major impact on the Italian and international opera scene and shifted the attention to opera seria (noble and "serious" style operas). However, his best-known works include comedies such as L'elisir d'amore (1832) and Don Pasquale (1843).

Eduardo Di Capua

Eduardo di Capua was an Italian composer of the late 19th century. His father was a musician and introduced him to the world of music. In fact, he travelled with his father to many European countries. During one of his journeys to the Ukraine in 1898, he composed the famous melody of "O sole mio" together with the poet Giovanni Capurro. O sole mio would become an unofficial, romantic Italian anthem. Funily enough, at the 1920 Olympic Games in Antwerp supposedly the conductor of the band could not find the music for the actual Italian national anthem and instead he played "O Sole Mio."

    The concert was very interesting and nice and the church is beautiful. The problem is that people that sit on central seats cannot see the tenors or the orchestra playing due to the plan of the church.

    Bravo aux trois ténors qui savent allier technique, brio et humour pour des oeuvres que certes on connaît bien mais que l'on entend toujours avec plaisir en "live". Bravo aussi pour les instrumentistes, un superbe travail d'ensemble. Signé : une violoncelliste qui sait ce que cela implique comme travail de préparation ! En plus dans ce lieu superbe… avec un clin d'oeil pour les personnages des mosaïques, têtes de personnages célèbres du 19è siècle…

    Enjoyed the performance and selection of music etc. However, the overall experience could be much better if performers used microphones attached to lapels. Also, extremely hot with no air‐conditioning. On a positive note the tenors did a good job of engaging the audience in Part two of the performance

    The performance was good, it was uncomfortably cold, so some heating would have been welcome. Also an announcement to ask people not to take photos would have been very good . They were very distracting, but also the girl telling them to stop was also distracting.
