As Tulsa Opera Presents "Samson and Delilah," a Chat with Legendary Bass-Baritone Samuel Ramey

May 10, 2016

Tonight (Friday the 6th, at 7:30pm) and Sunday afternoon (the 8th, at 2:30pm), Tulsa Opera will present "a grand opera of biblical proportions" -- namely, Camille Saint-Saëns' "Samson and Delilah," in which Samson seeks to free his Hebrew kinsmen from the bondage of their Philistine oppressors, although the alluring and seductive Delilah has other plans.... Our guest today on ST is the legendary bass, Samuel Ramey, who's been an internationally known opera singer for decades -- and who's appearing in this production as the Old Hebrew. As Ramey tells us, he's actually sung in a few other Tulsa Opera shows over the years. More about this production can be found here.
