Samson and Delilah by Camille Saint-Saëns, premiered in Weimar in 1877, dramatizes this well-known biblical story thrusting the Israelite warrior into the arms of the Philistine seductress who ultimately betrays him. Including the famous “Bacchanale” of the pleasure-loving Philistines, this opera is not to be missed.
