Tony Award-winning director Darko Tresnjak gives Saint-Saëns’s biblical epic its first new Met production in over fifteen years, with Soprano Elīna Garanča and tenor Roberto Alagna sing the title roles, and Sir Mark Elder conducting.
Blessed with immense physical strength, Hebrew leader Samson is sworn to defend his people and his faith from the Philistines. Though his body is strong, his heart is tender, though. When the Philistine Dalila sets out to seduce him, he is powerless to resist.
The beautiful aria “Mon coeur s’ouvre à ta voix ” marks the height of his seduction—and his betrayal.
