Conducted by Philippe Jordan, this new production of Saint-Saën’s searing opera, based on a violent and erotic bible story, brings back a repertoire masterpiece that has not been performed at the Paris Opera for twenty-five years.

Lightning streaks through the skies as Dalila declares her love to Samson in one of the finest arias of romantic opera. “My heart awakens to your voice like a flower to the kiss of dawn.” An enchanting yet treacherous beauty… When the thunder at last rumbles, Dalila betrays Samson and offers him up to his enemies: “Come up, for this time he has shown me all his heart”, she whispers to them in the night (The Old Testament, Book of Judges).

Ever sensational as a femme fatale, Anita Rachvelishvili will play the murderous Delila to Alexandrs Antonenko's Samson in this new production by the always innovative Damiano Michieletto
