It’s the ultimate story of love, seduction, and betrayal — Samson and Delilah. According to the Old Testament, Samson’s great strength embodied in his flowing hair made him invincible until he met his greatest weakness in a woman named Delilah. She seduced him and reduced him to a mere mortal by cutting off his mighty mane, and he was blinded and imprisoned. Music Director Robert Spano conducts Saint- Saëns grand opera and Greer will once again work with the incredible Stephanie Blythe! Look in his video tab to see their famous duet together from the opera at the 2013 Richard Tucker Opera Gala that aired on PBS' LIVE FROM LINCOLN CENTER.
