Thais in Broadway THAIS
Segerstrom Center for the Arts, Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall
5/27-5/27/2014
One of the most beloved French operas, Jules Massenet's Thais tells the tale of the most beautiful courtesan in Alexandria, who holds an entire city in her thrall as she embraces life's most sensual delights. One man alone, the monk Athanael, weeps for her sins, but his pilgrimage to save the sinner's soul becomes a tortured journey of erotic obsession. As seducer transforms into saint, the holy man falls victim to his own passions. Internationally acclaimed soprano Nino Machaidze stars as Thais alongside the incomparable Placido Domingo as Athanael.

Tartuffe in Broadway TARTUFFE
South Coast Repertory
5/9-6/8/2014
They banned it in Paris. But that was in 1664. Three hundred years later, it would be the play to put SCR on the map. Now, celebrate the landmark 50th Season with a revival of this classic comedy about the man who gave the word "hypocrite" a bad reputation. A family watches in astonishment as the head of the household falls under Tartuffe's spell. While they scheme to get rid of the false prophet, he does himself in, proving that when your thoughts are supposed to be turned heavenward, it's a good idea not to reveal earthly desires, especially when someone is hiding in the closet-or under the table.
