Thais http://tpr.org en Crazy Love, Massenet’s Thais http://tpr.org/post/crazy-love-massenet-s-thais <p>If ever the term ‘opposites attract’ were applied to an opera, it should applied to Jules Massenet’s Thais. Two of the unlikeliest of characters will carry on an extended, <b><i>obsessive</i></b> and <b><i>sublimated non-affair affair</i></b>. It will inspire some of the composer’s most popular music, the <b><i>Meditation for violin and orchestra</i></b>, though the work as a whole has never quite become part of the repertory. It falls between two of his most well known works <i>Werther</i> and <i>Cendrillion</i>. Fri, 02 Nov 2012 15:31:16 +0000 Ron Moore 1233 at http://tpr.org Crazy Love, Massenet’s Thais
