Thaïs by Jules Massenet( )

18 editions published between 1975 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This rarity had not been heard at the Met for almost 40 years when it was brought back as a vehicle for the great soprano Beverly Sills and the magnetic singing actor Sherrill Milnes. Together, they masterfully bring to life the searing conflict at the heart of the drama
