Long ago in 4th century Egypt, the monk Athanael resolves to convert the seductive Thais to a life of piety. After first mocking his conversion attempt, she meditates and determines to follow him, rejecting the luxurious trappings of her former life. As Thais enters the convent and her new life, Athanael recognizes that he loves her desperately--but it may be too late for them. With an opulent set, shimmering costumes, and artists from Repertory Dance Theatre joining on stage, this lavish production is a feast for the senses. Co-instructors Kevin Nakatani and Dr. Carol Anderson will introduce French Grand Opera, the music of Jules Massenet, and the background and musical highlights of the opera. At the conclusion of the hour-long class, interested attendees will have the option to observe a rehearsal and receive a discount opportunity to attend a performance of "Thais"
