Placido Domingo stars as Athanaël in Jules Massenet's opera "Thais", an opera about an Egyptian courtesan (Thais) whom Athanaël attempts to convert to Christianity. Placido Domingo, one of the greatest opera singers of his generation, has had an illustrious career and is now in his 70s. Uniquely for him, he has also transitioned from a singer into a well-respected conductor. Come listen to him sing while you still can!
The opera will be sung in French with projected English supertitles.
Based on the previous survey posted here, it looks like Sunday, June 1 at 2:00 pm would work for the most people.
Since different people have different levels that they are willing to spend for tickets, obtaining a ticket will be your own responsibility. We will meet before the performance and during intermissions. If enough people are interested, we will also go out to dinner at a nearby restaurant after the opera. As of this writing (3/23), tickets are still available at all price levels.
Please indicate in the comments below if you would be interested in going out to dinner afterwards.
