It turns out that La Cieca’s fanciful prediction (of what Renée Fleming would wear from the Christian Lacroix collection) was not so far off after all!

More images from the Met’s Thaïs after the jump. 

Crobyle (Alyson Cambridge) and Myrtale (Ginger Costa-Jackson) try to persuade Thomas Hampson to use some product on those nappy dreads.

Thaïs: “I like a sophisticated man to take me out.”
Nicias: “I’m not really sophisticated.”
Thaïs: “You’re not really out yet, either.”

“Mortify the flesh all you like, mon père, but never forget your sunblock!”
