The Met Opera: Samson et Dalila - ENCORE
An encore performance of Saint-Saens’s Samson et Dalila will be shown in select cinemas nationwide on Wednesday, October 24. Saint-Saens’s biblical epic stars Elīna Garanca and Roberto Alagna in the title roles; the pair was last seen together by Live in HD audiences in the acclaimed 2010 transmission of Bizet’s Carmen. Laurent Naouri co-stars as the High Priest, with Elchin Azizov as the Philistine King Abimelech and Dmitry Belosselskiy as the Old Hebrew. Darko Tresnjak, the Tony Award–winning director of A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder, makes his Met debut directing the first new Met production of the opera in 20 years. Sir Mark Elder conducts.
