Programme: Jules Massenet: Thaïs
In his times, Jules Massenet was a very successful and popular opera composer of the French romantic period. However, his work faded into oblivion only to be passionately rediscovered in the recent decades. Part of the opera Thaïs is the well-known Meditation that has never disappeared from the stage. But what is Massenet's opera like as a whole? Even the experts are groping in the dark here. One can thus expect a unique music experience.
