Samson and Delilah (French: Samson et Dalila), 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 (Grand Ducal) Theater (now the Staatskapelle Weimar) 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.

e Metropolitan Opera is pleased to salute Rolex in recognition of its generous support during the 2018–19 season. Many mezzo-sopranos have made memorable impressions as Dalila at the Met, including Risë Stevens (32 performances between 1940 and 1958), Grace Bumbry (1971– 72), Shirley Verrett (1981–90), Olga Borodina (1998–2006), and Denyce Graves (1998–2005).

Fausto Cleva's conducting is quite remarkable; both Stevens and Del Monaco are magnificent. Although I am still quite regretful that this is not a complete performance I find that what's there is better than nothing. I am happy to say that as far as Stevens is concerned age and distance have not altered my youthful perception.
