With this concert, we thank Klaus-Michael Kühne and his Kühne Foundation for their generous support of the Philharmonic State Orchestra. Guest for this special occasion is star singer Elīna Garanča, with SeokJong Baek and Egils Silins at her side. Under the baton of General Music Director Kent Nagano, they join forces with the Philharmonic State Orchestra to present a highly emotional and deeply dramatic program: from highlights from Prokofiev's ballet "Romeo and Juliet," which the composer himself compiled into three orchestral suites, to the centerpiece of the opera "Samson et Dalila." Going back to a biblical material, Saint-Saëns' music tells of the resistance of the Hebrew slaves who, under their leader Samson, rebel against the Philistines. A well-kept secret protects Samson's strength - until Dalila snatches it from him, tempting him with love. Here, too, Shakespeare's prophecy from "Romeo and Juliet" comes true with thunderclaps: "And love dares what love can do" - even the greatest betrayal.
