Synopsis

Blessed with immense physical strength, Hebrew leader Samson is sworn to defend his people and his faith from the Philistines. But when the Philistine Dalila sets out to seduce him, he is powerless to resist.

Tony Award-winning director Darko Tresnjak (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder), makes his Met debut directing the first new Met production of Samson et Dalila in 20 years.
