For all the fame and beauty of the music of Thaïs, the best reason to perform this French opera is to show off a star soprano with a voice that could turn a monk’s attention from chaste disregard to irrepressible desire.
Nicole Car is that star, and she sings the role of the disillusioned courtesan in concert, opposite Canadian baritone Etienne Dupuis. The Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra will play the powerful score in a rare opportunity to hear this opera performed live.
