Metropolitan Opera Adventures with Mike Cascia

Mike Cascia will lecture on Saint-Saëns’ Samson et Dalila.
Blessed with immense physical strength, leader of the Hebrews, Samson is sworn to defend his people and his faith from the Philistines.  Formidable leader though he is, his heart is tender and when Philistine Dalila sets out to seduce him, he is powerless against her wiles. He reveals to Dalila the secret of his strength and immediately his fate is sealed. Imprisoned, blinded, and humiliated, can Samson ever atone for his folly?  Sponsored by the Friends of the Enfield Library.
