When mezzo-soprano El?na Garan?a and tenor Roberto Alagna joined forces for a new production of Carmen at the Met, the results were electrifying. Now, this star duo reunites for another sensual French opera in the title roles of Saint-Saëns's SAMSON ET DALILA. Darko Tresnjak, who won a Tony Award for Best Director of a Musical in 2014 for A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder, makes his Met debut directing a vivid, seductive staging, featuring a monumental setting for the last-act Temple of Dagon, where the hero crushes his Philistine enemies. Sir Mark Elder conducts the first new Met production of the work in 20 years.
