Samson et Dalila - Live Broadcast

Camille Saint-Saëns

Estimated Run Time 3hrs 4mins

Saint-Saëns’s biblical epic Samson et Dalila stars mezzo-soprano Elena Garanca and tenor Roberto Alagna in the title roles. The star-duo reunite for another sensual French opera this time directed by Darko Tresnjak, who won a Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical in 2014* for A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder. He makes his Met debut directing a vivid, seductive production featuring a monumental setting for the last-act Temple of Dagon, where the hero crushes his Philistine enemies. Sir Mark Elder conducts the first new Met production of the work in 20 years.

Sung in French
