STAFF PICK
"This is a perfect performance of a great operatic masterpiece. Thaïs is considered Massenet's most beautiful and most demanding work, and Renée Fleming in the title role masters all its complexities."
- Nathaniel



Renée Fleming triumphs as the glamorous courtesan Thaïs in Massenet's romantic tragedy set in fourth century Alexandria and the Egyptian desert. The timeless struggle between earthly desire and spiritual redemption finally destroys the resolve of the monk Athanaël (Thomas Hampson), just as the newly penitent Thaïs dies with a vision of angels greeting her in heaven. Filmed in High Definition Widescreen.

Great Performance

I'm fully enjoyed this opera production and can say this is one of the best operas ever performed in MET. I would like to say thank-you to Renee Fleming, Thomas Hampson, Michael Schade, Jesus Lopez-Cobos, David Chang, and all Met staff to have introduced this great performance to me before I die!
