great evening listening to Vivaldi - The Four Seasons
Oct 2019
Just happened upon this performance of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons while we were walking around Florence. Got last minute tickets and were very glad that we went. Terrific performance. The venue is relatively small and our "inexpensive" seats in the 3rd section were great. Don't see reason to have spent twice as much to sit in the front section.

Sweltering venue for Three Tenors in Florence
Aug 2019 • Couples
The Tenors were excellent. The temperature however, was in the 90's outside and this venue is not air conditioned. I cannot recommend attending events here if it is hot outside as this is the most uncomfortably hot indoor entertainment venue I have ever been in. Our tickets were not cheap, but we left at intermission as the venue did not cool off even as it got later in the evening. It had to be in the 80's in this building and there was no air circulating. Regrettable. Had I been aware that this building did not get cool, I would have cancelled our tickets the day before. Absolutely miserable experience.

The Davinci Experience at Santo Stefano al Ponte
Aug 2019 • Couples
We went yesterday August 4 2019. This "experience" is nothing more than an expensive tourist trap. You arrive up the steps of this church to the ticket box and notice the run down appearance, however, it's 13 euros!, must be pretty great. DO NOT GET THE VR OPTION. (The Davinci museum is only 7 euro, right?) You go around to the side, where there's kind of a bookstore, and then down into an area where there's a few of DaVinci's models, and a run down VR section, basically a few stools and VR headsets. You feel kind of odd, like hmm.. that's it? and there are some steps up into the church.. where you get the experience!! Oh, my. a few sparse benches, and the inside of a church with projection screens all over, projecting his paintings and such with a ridiculous dramatic soundtrack. You're kind of over the whole thing about five minutes in.. and you look around at all the other suckers and think, well, that was $30 poorly spent. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

Orchestra da Camera Fiorentina
Jun 2019 • Couples
Went to a concert of assorted music. The players were good, except the soloist seemed to go off in a huff at the end (and he made mistakes). The harpsichord tucked away behind the strings was inaudible – and was crucial to one movement. Rubbish acoustic in the hall. There was no contact between players and audience, no introduction to pieces. Very disappointing.

Something different
May 2019 • Couples
I recommend this if you want something different to do other than the art galleries and shopping. I enjoyed the performance of the singers and musicians. The ballet was not necessary since only the people in the front row can see their full movements.

To be avoided
May 2019 • Couples
The venue must be the ugliest church in Florence, but the screens and projected flowers certainly don't improve it. This might not have mattered if the show was good. The cjhairs were arranged in a very curious way, presumably to suggest hat most tickets had been sold rather than show a lot of empty seats.
The piano accompanist was excellent, no complaints there. The dancing was curiously embarrassing - choreography rather basic, although the four dancers were fine if a little redundant to the overall performance.
'Violetta' was sung by a coloratura soprano whose pitch was very unstable especially in the first half, to the point where it was sometimes hard to discern what note she was singing. In contrast both the male leads were strong singers, and the tenor could act as well.
The overall performance was most unsatisfactory, and not a good use of an evening (let alone the cost of a ticket).

Van Gogh i maledetti and the Baroque concert were fabulous
Apr 2019 • Solo
Went twice to this venue and was amazed at each one. The baroque concert was not well attended, and I wonder why. Excellent performance and illumination.
The Van Gogh was absolutely spellbinding; there were 8 benches where you could sit, families sat on the floor with their children. I sat through the whole presentation twice. Also excellent explanations down the stairs.

Three Tenors in Florence
Mar 2019
VERY DISAPPOINTING!! It was certainly not what was advertised nor pictured. There were only two musicians, not three; there were no displays projected on the walls around us; the washrooms were not cleaned before the performance and were smelly and disgusting; No pictures/videos were allowed, and in this case, I wonder if it was so the dishonesty wasn’t revealed. The dancers were mediocre and could only be seen above the waist as they performed on the seating level. The tenors were okay; one was “cheesy” and annoying. It was not well-attended, and I totally understand why. There was NO value to this, and I do not recommend it.

The Three Tenors in Florence Italy
Jan 2019 • Family
My wife and I just saw this tonight 1/19/19 and it was wonderful. It may be that they need to update their website and brochures, as we could not tell if anybody on stage was identified in the brochure. A program would be helpful...but we didn’t go to read-we went to listen to 3 tenors. And all 3 tenors were wonderful. Energetic. Fun. Pianist was awesome. Mandolin player was great. Young man and woman performing ballet to some of the songs terrific-unnecessary but terrific. Two encores. Two times a standing ovation. Yeah. You should catch this if you can. !!!
