Saint-Saëns
Samson et Dalila

Mezzo-soprano Gertrud Wettergren is the legendary biblical temptress whose ensnares the strongest man in the world, Samson, only to leave him a helpless prisoner of his enemies. Belgian tenor René Maison blends superb French style with virile intensity to make this hero a truly tragic figure. The great singing actor Ezio Pinza brings dramatic depth to role of the High Priest of Dagon.
