Thaïs, inspired by Anatole France’s novel, staged for the first time at the Palais Garnier in 1894, has never been performed at La Scala. Massenet’s refined and exquisite score aptly evokes the literary source, inflecting the dialectic of sin and redemption in a spectacular exercise in style combining erudition, exoticism, and sensuality. Lorenzo Viotti continues the exploration of French music that began with Roméo et Juliette in 2020, featuring one of the most dynamic stage directors in Europe, Olivier Py.
