de Monte-Carlo

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.
