Rockport Music presents the 2018-2019 MET Opera Series in HD. Watch the MET Opera in HD’s performance of Samson et Dalila on Saturday, October 20 at 12:55 pm at the Shalin Liu Performance Center.
Saint-Saëns’s biblical epic Samson et Dalila stars Elīna Garanča and Roberto Alagna in the title roles; the pair was last seen together by 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 Abimélech 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.
Tickets are $32, $29, $20.
