Samson and Dalila - Met Opera New York


Screened at Spotlight Theatre


Saint-Saens opera is set in ancient Palestine where the Hebrews are held in bondage to the Philistines. Samson, the leader of the Hebrews, leads his people in a revolt against the Philistines.

His amazing strength defeats all foes but, unfortunately, a beautiful Philistine woman, Dalila, seduces him.

He tells her the secrets of his strength, and the Philistines conquer the Hebrews again

In the end, Samson is able to conjure up his strength one last time to destroy both the Philistines and himself.
