Thaïs – Plácido Domingo in Massenet’s classic opera

1- 4  March  2017 at 8pm

Teatre del Lice Barcelona Legendary Spanish tenor Plácido Domingo returns to the historic Liceu theatre to perform in Massenet’s opera, Thaïs. This is one of Massenet’s most frequently staged operas and is set in Egypt during Byzantine rule.

It tells the tale of a monk, Athanaël (Plácido Domingo), who attempts to convert Thaïs, a beautiful courtesan, to Christianity but in the process becomes infatuated with her and falls victim to his own passions. The role of Thaïs is usually only performed by the most gifted of singers as it is a notoriously difficult role to perform. Plácido Domingo takes the role of Athanaël and the role of Thaïs will be performed by Georgian soprano Nino Machaidze.
