Click here to learn more about Jules Massenet's Thaïs in Revue: Thaïs.

    

One of the most beloved French operas, Jules Massenet’s Thaïs tells the tale of the most beautiful courtesan in Alexandria, who holds an entire city in her thrall as she embraces life’s most sensual delights. One man alone, the monk Athanaël, weeps for her sins, but his pilgrimage to save the sinner’s soul becomes a tortured journey of erotic obsession. As seducer transforms into saint, the holy man falls victim to his own passions. Internationally acclaimed soprano Nino Machaidze stars as Thaïs alongside the incomparable Placido Domingo as Athanaël.

Sung in French with projected English translation

Conducted by Patrick Fournillier
