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.
