Samson et Dalila by Camille Saint-Saëns( Recording )

32 editions published between 1963 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Biblical tale of the overwhelming love between a Jewish leader (Samson) and a Philistine beauty (Dalila) that turns sour and destroys them both has inspired numerous composers. But it's easy to see why Saint-Saëns's opera has remained a favorite--not only with audiences but also with great singing actors. Seldom has Dalila been so sultry and seductive, or Samson's fall from strong man to blind prisoner been so wrenching. With enticing Risë Stevens and heroic Mario Del Monaco in the titles roles, and Martial Singher as the High Priest, this stunning performance is a true gem

(Scene: A shore on the island of Ceylon in antiquity) In anticipation of the fishing season, the villagers elect Zurga as their king and prepare their annual vigil to ensure safe seas. Zurga welcomes Nadir, his long-time friend, whom he has not seen since their love for the same woman divided them. They promise eternal friendship and vow never again to allow a woman to come between them. Within moments, a woman arrives, veiled. She will stand through the night, alone on the shore, in ritual prayer. Zurga promises her a priceless pearl if she is chaste in her duty and death if she violates her purity. Nadir recognizes her voice. It is Léïla, the woman he and Zurga loved in the past, and his feelings for her are rekindled
