Thaïs by Jules Massenet( Recording )

36 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Take one ascetic monk named Athanaël and one ravishingly beautiful courtesan named Thaïs, add Massenet's sensual, melodious music, with equal dashes of eroticism and religious fervor--and you have a powerful opera that is at once a celebration of the sacred and the profane, of flesh and soul.

Together, they masterfully bring to life the searing conflict at the heart of the drama
