Today, “Samson et Dalila” is undoubtedly one of the best-known of Camille Saint-Saëns’s thirteen operas, being more present in the repertoire of international stages than most other French 19th century compositions. During Saint-Saëns’s lifetime, the opera was already regarded as the pinnacle of his dramatic stage works.
