Program Notes

Samson and Delilah, Op. 47, is a grand opera in three acts and four scenes by Camille Saint-Saëns to a French libretto by Ferdinand Lemaire. It was first performed in Weimar at the Grossherzogliches on 2 December 1877 in a German translation.

The opera is based on the Biblical tale of Samson and Delilah found in Chapter 16 of the Book of Judges in the Old Testament. The Danse Bacchanale is performed in the third act of the opera by the priests of Dagon as the Philistines led by Delilah are preparing a sacrifice to commemorate their victory over Samson and the Hebrews.
