Okay, I can't help myself. I recently heard from an
opera buff that Beverly Sills, for little apparent
reason, used to refer to this opera as "thighs" in
conversations and interviews. Perhaps this was an
allusion to the singer's need for strong legs and
stamina, as many Massenet operas often last quite a
long time. More trivial information that is of little
practical use, but might be worth a laugh. Good luck
finding your video.

>Hello, great collective! I am trying to track down
a video and DVD version of the opera Thais by
Massenet. I'm not too concerned with whodunit. I have
checked all the usual suspects. I thought I had it
ordered, but the feature film from Poland came
instead, and I can't track down where I originally
ordered this from. Thanks for your help!
