  • Renée Fleming triumphs as the glamorous courtesan Thaïs in Massenet’s romantic tragedy set in fourth-century Alexandria and the Egyptian desert. The libretto is based on the novel by Anatole France from the medieval legend of Saint Thaïs. The timeless struggle between earthly desire and spiritual redemption finally destroys the resolve of the monk Athanaël, just as the newly penitent Thaïs ascends heavenward. Conductor López-Cobos gives a masterly performance of the sensuous score, with concert master David Chan contributing the ravishing solo, Méditation, in the second act.

  • By the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Chorus and Ballet Jesus Lopez-Cobos
  • Featuring Renee Fleming, Thomas Hampson, Michael Schade
  • French with English subtitles, 2009, 2:18
