Sex and sin have taken over the city of Alexandria, now ruled over by the lusty courtesan Thaïs, who spends her days pursuing sensual delights. Renowned tenor Plácido Domingo plays a pious monk determined to save the courtesan's soul and bring the city back to God. But as the sinner becomes a saint, the holy man falls victim to his own passion for Thaïs. This thrilling production from the Finnish National Opera has taken European opera houses by storm and now brings its intoxicating melodies and exotic colors to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, thanks to LA Opera. Performed in French with projected English translations, Thaïs will seduce you with its glittering costumes and sets and the passionate soprano of the incomparable Nino Machaidze, as Thaïs.

Admission tickets to any high end entertainment are steep in cost. Consequently, plan to eat out before you head out to the music center. There is no major restaurants at a walking distance. The ones in there are what you expect when there is no option available--will squeeze the green out of your wallet. By the way, bring your own wine bottle and glasses and some small items to eat because you can. The court area allows people to pic nic two hours before show time. The parking is $8 and well spent because is just below the music center and again you can bring some pic nic food and have plenty of time to return to your car to dispose of your dirty glasses. Good luck and make it a great date.
