Synopsis by Nathan Southern
The Teatro Regio Torino mounted this visually evocative and highly stylized 2009 production of Jules Massenet's three-act, lyric comedy opera Thais. The production stars Barbara Frittoli as Thaïs, Lado Ataneli as Athanaël, Alessandro Liberatore as Nicias, and Maurizio Lo Piccolo as Palémon. The Orchestra and Chorus of the Teatro Regio Torino lend added musical accompaniment, under the baton of Gianandrea Noseda; Stefano Poda directs for the stage.
