The Met Live in HD: Camille Saint-Saens' SAMSON ET DALILA

The Met Live in HD: Camille Saint-Saens
October 20, 2018 11:00 AM
Location: Taos Community Auditorium

 

When mezzo-soprano Elīna Garanča and tenor Roberto Alagna joined forces for a new production of Carmen at the Met, the results were electrifying. Now this star duo reunites for another sensual French opera in the title roles of Saint-Saëns’s biblical epic Samson et Dalila. Darko Tresnjak, who won a Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical in 2014 for A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder, makes his Met debut directing a vivid, seductive staging, featuring a monumental setting for the last-act Temple of Dagon, where the hero crushes his Philistine enemies. Sir Mark Elder conducts the first new Met production of the work in 20 years.

Estimated runtime is 3 hours and 4 minutes including 2 intermissions.

Tickets are $20 for TCA Members, $25 for General Adult admission and free for Youth 17 and under (thanks to Taos Opera Guild) and may be purchased in advance by calling (575)758-2052.

Production a gift of the Gramma Fisher Foundation, Marshalltown, Iowa, and H.M. Agnes Hsu-Tang, PhD. and Oscar Tang

Additional funding from The Walter and Leonore Annenberg Endowment Fund
