What people are saying about Rome

Wow! This was an amazing experience! The theatre is just one block behind the Pantheon so it is super easy to access and surrounded by great restaurants. We enjoyed some cocktails while the group was congregating. The theatre is cozy and there only a few rows deep so everyone is close to the stage. The quality of the quartet was excellent, and the first violin was absolutely the best! There was a wonderful selection of operas greatest hits along with some traditional Italian favorites. The soprano and tenor stole the show - they have an great dynamic and are both amazing vocalist! It was the most entertaining hour we spent during our whole trip.

We walked to the venue after dinner in front of the Pantheon. It was a bit difficult to locate but finally a very nice lady walked us to the building. Better directions would have helped. We LOVED the performance! We're not opera fans but turns out we did recognize almost all of the work performed. The chamber group was simply marvelous as were the two singers. We had so much fun. Atter the performance one of the staff left the building with us to get us pointed in the right direction to catch a taxi.

Very enjoyable 1 hr evening concert! Well known classical music pieces composed by Italian composers Puccini, Verdi, Vivaldi, Mascagni, Boccherini... Elegant, historical venue (St Catherina of Siena lived in this place, the Chapel is in the foyer) close to the Pantheon in Rome. We loved the performance of a string quartet, soprano and tenor soloists!

A lovely evening in Rome. The opera and piano concert was wonderful. The acoustics in this charming church truly enhanced the experience. The dinner afterwards was delicious and we were lucky enough to meet new friends.

the performance was excellent. A small hall and professional singers and string quartet. I was feeling that that they perform personally for me. Highly recommend.
