Jules Massenet’s sumptuous opera sits against the backdrop of the French Revolution and Robespierre’s infamous Reign of Terror. Massenet’s soaring, sweeping melodic lines heighten emotions that are, despite the melodrama of the setting, rooted in the complications of very human relationships.

Thérèse finds herself at a crossroad. She is caught between her husband, a revolutionary representative, and her former lover, a deposed nobleman and her husband’s close friend. As the three are drawn inextricably together, revolutionary fervour rises, and Thérèse’s affairs of the heart become matters of life and death.

This is a superb chance to experience this gem of the Late Romantic repertoire.
