Recorded live in high-definition! One of the most compelling biblical tales to emerge from the Old Testament comes to life in this sweeping epic of a hero who is seduced by a woman and loses his heart, his hair and finally his strength. This riveting opera features lush music and one of the most thrilling bacchanalian dance spectacles ever conceived for the stage. Make no mistake, this production is a Cecil B. DeMille-like extravaganza. Tenor Clifton Forbis brings down the temple (and the house) in this sumptuous production featuring Russian mezzo-soprano Olga Borodina and conductor Patrick Summers.
Sung in French with English subtitles.

"[Borodina] soared through the part with ease and seductive allure…[with her] gloriously voluptuous singing..."
- San Francisco Chronicle
