Saint-Saëns: Samson et Dalila - Verrett, Cassilly, Massard, Foiani; Prêtre. Milano, 1970


Listen to a Sample:



  • Shirley Verrett was born to sing Dalila. She harnesses her formidable vocal resources to convey warmth, seduction and venomous spite.
  • Richard Cassilly's oversized tenor approaches biblical scale as Samson without ever sacrificing the natural sweetness of his voice.
  • Georges Prêtre brings surprising depth to Saint-Saëns lush score.


  • None to mention.
