LA Opera Community Educator Ron Streicher presents an uncensored exposé of the fate of a classic "fallen woman" in an illustrated discussion of the opera "Thaïs" by Jules Massenet from 2 to 3 p.m. With a libretto by Louis Gallet based on a novel by the Nobel Prize-winning Anatole France, the opera tells of the conflict between the love of human pleasures and a devotion to God that ultimately consumes the lives of the two principal characters. Because of the provocative sexual references and nudity, this presentation is rated "R;" not recommended for children. Light refreshments will be served.
