Chiara Panacci and Eugenio Milazzo were wonderful - standing ovation. They did an impeccable job - for the price you cannot beat it. Will look them up to see where they go. Chiapa's voice is beautiful and she sings with emotions and feelings.

The opera soprano and pianist were excellent. I'm not an opera fan but figured I should expose my self to some culture. I felt the the soloists voice was too overpowering for the little church venue. She needs to perform in a larger hall

Just what you want to remind you that you are in the home of opera. When we went, the soprano was excellent, singing many favourite arias. Great.
