Opera review: Florida Grand Opera excels in Massenet’s ‘Thaïs’

Jules Massenet’s Thaïs was once nearly a staple of the operatic repertoire but faded from view outside of France by the mid-20th century. The 1894 work is a heady mixture of repressed passion and religiosity set in ancient Egypt with a score that blends such diverse influences as Orientalism, Wagnerian music drama and French grand opera.
