Thaïs | Jules Massenet
A devout monk seeks to convert Thaïs, a ravishingly beautiful courtesan, but realizes too late that his pious obsession is rooted in lust, not religion. Massenet's sensual and melodic creation, set in the deserts and oases of 4th-century Egypt, explores the conflict between the passion of the flesh and the salvation of the soul.
