The Metropolitan Opera: Samson et Dalila ENCORE

An encore performance of Saint-Saëns's Samson et Dalila will be shown in select cinemas nationwide on Wednesday, October 24. Saint-Saëns's biblical epic stars Elina Garanca and Roberto Alagna in the title roles; the pair was last seen together by Live in HD audiences in the acclaimed 2010 transmission of Bizet's Carmen. Laurent Naouri co-stars as the High Priest, with Elchin Azizov as the Philistine King Abimélech and Dmitry Belosselskiy as the Old Hebrew. Darko Tresnjak, the Tony Award-winning director of A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder, makes his Met debut directing the first new Met production of the opera in 20 years. Sir Mark Elder conducts.
