the staging though is one of the most awe inspiring things I have ever scene absolutley stunning I wish I had scene it live the sheer scale on offer is increadible.
It is also an increadibly moving and sometimes intimate portrayel and Flemming barring aforementioned death scene is in my eyes perfect as a woman who is supposed to distort men and be the most bueatiful women you can lay yoru eyes on. The ending is heart wrenching and the pains on Thomas Hampson's face are etched clean through the music. We have a man who 'saves' one soul at the complete destruction of himself and the loss of his own soul and it is trully beleavable.
Renee Fleming is outstanding in this role, her voice swiftly changing from the fun loving courtesan to a spiritual woman, showing off the skill and beauty of her voice. Thomas Hampson's voice is powerful and strong when playing the intimidating Athanael, but grows softer as the monk falls in love with Thais. The final duet blends these two voices perfectly and creates an incredibly beautiful sound.
Tenor Michael Schade plays Nicias, Athanaël's old friend. His voice is light and smooth, creating an interesting contrast from Hampson's deep baritone voice, showing that these characters are complete opposits.
Alyson Cambridge and Ginger Costa-Jackson, also deserve recognition for playing Nicias's mischievous servants,Crobyle and Myrtale. Their voices are brilliantly matched, especially in the L'incomparable scene. The mix of a soprano and contralto in that duet is stunning.
Last, but not least, the sublime Meditation, played by violinist David Chan, was exquisite.
This is one of the best MET operas I have seen and definitely worth buying.

This DVD release comes a few years since Fleming and Hampson recorded the opera in a studio. Both the main singers are suited extremely well to the music. Read morePublished on 28 Aug. 2011 by Matthew
