GTMF Presents Saint-Saëns’ Samson and Dalila, A Metropolitan Opera: Live In HD Broadcast This Thursday

JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING 

The Grand Teton Music Festival’s exciting season of Live in HD broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera continues this Thursday, November 8 at 7PM with Saint-Saëns’ biblical epic Samson and Dalila.  

When mezzo-soprano Elīna Garanča 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 the virile Hebrew leader and the Philistine temptress who shears his strength. Tony Award-winning director Darko Tresnjak makes his Met debut with a vivid and seductive production—the first new staging in 20 years. Sir Mark Elder conducts the splendorous production, which Vogue praised as a “feast for the eyes and ears.”

The Metropolitan Opera stages more than 200 performances in New York each year, and the Grand Teton Music Festival is proud to share the Met’s historic productions with the Jackson Hole community. This year, the series is presented at the Jackson Hole Twin Cinema—295 West Pearl Avenue. Doors open at 6:45PM.

Reserve your tickets for the 2018–2019 season through our website. Single tickets are $20 for adults and seniors, $12 for students and children. To purchase tickets and learn more about the season, visit gtmf.org/met-2018.
