Met Opera: Samson et Dalila

Blessed with immense physical strength, Hebrew leader Samson is sworn to defend his people and his faith from the Philistines. But when the Philistine Dalila sets out to seduce him, he is powerless to resist.

Tony Award-winning director Darko Tresnjak (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder), makes his Met debut directing the first new Met production of Samson et Dalila in 20 years.

Saint-Saëns’s biblical epic Samson et Dalila stars Elīna Garanča and Roberto Alagna in the title roles; the pair was last seen together by HD audiences in the acclaimed 2010 production of Bizet’s Carmen. Laurent Naouri co-stars as the High Priest, with Elchin Azizov as the Philistine King Abimélech and Dmitry Belosselskiy as the Old Hebrew. Sir Mark Elder conducts.
