Director: Tiziano Mancini

Year: 2004

Plot: After the CD recording of Thaïs, which marked the beginning of Dynamic's collaboration with Venice's prestigious Teatro La Fenice, here is now the DVD version of this enthralling opera, by the captivating music and dramatic development. The title role, in this excellent production, is sung by an Eva Mei in great vocal form, who gives an interpretation of extraordinary depth. Beside her, the famous bass-baritone Michele Pertusi, as Athanaël, shows once again his unquestionable style. On the podium is Marcello Viotti, music director of the Venetian theatre. The story of the conversion of the beautiful courtesan, and the clash between spirituality and sensuality have been portrayed brilliantly by Pier Luigi Pizzi, one of today's most talented opera directors.
