Notes & Reviews:
Renee Fleming triumphs as the glamorous courtesan Thais 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 Athanael (Thomas Hampson), just as the newly penitent Thais ascends heavenward.Notes & Reviews:
