Is there anything that can bring a hero to his knees? Only the passion of the most beautiful woman in the world. Based on the infamous Bible tale, Samson is the only hope of the oppressed Hebrews and none of the machinations of the Philistines can stop him. Enter Dalila, the calculating seductress who can capture a man’s heart with ease. Dalila’s temptation of Samson will continue until she has what she wants: the secret of his strength. Her underestimation of Samson’s faith leads to the fatal climax of their story. Camille Saint-Saëns’ gripping retelling of this fable is a passionate account of what happens when two forces of nature meet and the consequences of such battles.
