On a biblical theme yet with barely hidden eroticism, Samson et Dalila allows Camille Saint-Saëns to offer audiences a grand opera that is spectacular while also intimate when it comes to seduction or remorse. Add to this the choir, mighty and generous, which is a character of its own. And on top of that the ballet, whose music no doubt is one of the most successful in the history of opera! Roberto Alagna, Marie-Nicole Lemieux and Ludovic Tézier will be the heroes of a performance that no one will want to miss!

 

Jean-Louis Grinda

 

This performance is given as part of the ‘Festival dans les théâtres antiques de Méditerranée’, of which the Chorégies d’Orange are a founding member, an initiative of the Summit of the Two Shores.
