The opera Thaïs written by Jules Massenet may exude sensuality, an obsessive theme in the late 19th century, but this lyrical comedy is also surprisingly modern. In this new co-production with the Hong Kong Opera, we rediscover this often neglected aspect of the adventures of Athanaël, a teenager burning with desire for Thaïs, a sensual circus games actress.
