Thais

Australia's young star soprano, Nicole Car, sings the title role in a concert performance of Massenet's opera of seduction

If you've seen Nicole Car sing, then you'll know she's got the vocal chops to pull of this role – but does she have the naughty streak? She'll need it to play Egyptian courtesan Thaïs, whose powers of seduction are enough to divert the evangelising monk Athanaël from virtue to vice – or at least, lust.

Singing opposite her is Québecois baritone Étienne Dupuis. 

This will be a one-night-only staged concert – no set design or props, just a costumed cast and orchestra. 

Single tickets for Thaîs are available from October 12. Until then, you can purchase tickets as part of a subscription.
