Florida Grand Opera closes the opera season with Massenetâ€™s exotic French opera, ThaÃ¯s. Bringing a touch of eastern mystique to the stage, ThaÃ¯s is a tale of religious eroticism where AthanaÃ«l, a cenobite monk, seeks to convert an Alexandrian courtesan and follower of Venus, goddess of love, to the path of Christianity. Making their debuts in the lead role are sopranos Eglise GutiÃ©rrez and Angela Mortellaro. Sung in French with projected translations in English and Spanish.
