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.

This is my first time seeing the Magic Flute. I loved the costumes and the sets. The voices were excellent. We had first row seats and it was interesting to be close but impossible to read the words above the stage. At intermission we moved back.
I recommend this opera for first timers.
Quotes & Highlights
“The LA Opera production is a lavish cartoon world…and the animals designer Gerald Scarfe creates are the most bewitching this side of Broadway’s The Lion King.” —Los Angeles Times
LA Opera’s celebrated original production returns, this time under the direction of James Conlon. Legendary English visual artist, satirist, and cartoonist Gerald Scarfe designed the fantastic sets and eyecatching costumes for this Peter Hall production. The Magic Flute is both a fanciful fairy tale and an allegory hinting at deeper mysteries. This ever-popular work has enchanted young and old alike for over two centuries.
