Description The Biblical legend of Samson and Delilah is synonymous with seduction, passion and betrayal – perfect elements for an opera and ideal entertainment for an evening under Perth’s warm skies. With its famously risqué Bacchanale ballet, popular arias and the explosive climax as Samson brings the temple crashing down, Saint Saëns’ opera about the famous Philistine temptress is as irresistible as ever.
