SAMSON ET DALILA • Teatro San Carlo Napoli | October 6, 2022
SAMSON ET DALILA – Teatro San Carlo Naples
The French pianist and composer Camille Saint-Saëns composed the opera Samson et Dalila at the end of the 19th century. Ferdinand Lemaire wrote the libretto for the opera.
The plot deals with the biblical story of the Old Testament, namely the time when the people of Israel migrated from Egypt and immigrated to Palestine. It is about the war with the Philistines and the God Yahweh, who according to the first commandment was allowed to be the only God of the Israelites.
Besides the “Carnival of the Animals”, the opera “Samson et Dalila” is the only successful opera by Saint-Saëns.
The opera was premiered in 1877 under Franz Liszt at the Weimarer Hoftheater. Camille Saint-Saëns later added further parts to the opera in three acts.
