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.

Quotes & Highlights
“La Traviata will go down in opera history as one of the most successful productions LA Opera has staged to date…every element was stupendous.” —OperaOnline.us
London’s Evening Standard praises soprano Marina Poplavskaya for “her mesmerizing dramatic intensity and vocal power.”
Returning will be Elizabeth Futral, who The New York Times lauded for her “florid coloratura roulades and embellishments that seem natural elaborations of long melodic lines.” Massimo Giordano and Aleksei Dolgov play Violetta’s love interest, Alfredo Germont. Andrzej Dobber and Stephen Powell share the role of Giorgio Germont. Grant Gershon makes his podium debut, and Marta Domingo directs the lavish period staging of Verdi’s best-loved opera.
