The definitive Delilah of our day, Olga Borodina has been praised by Allan Ulrich in the San Francisco Chronicle for her "gloriously voluptuous singing."
The Russian mezzo-soprano reprises her seductive 2001 performance as the tantalizing temptress in an eagerly awaited revival of Saint-Saëns’ biblical epic. Clifton Forbis, whose powerful tenor voice has thrilled audiences from Vienna to Los Angeles, plays the Old Testament hero who loses his heart, his hair, and finally his strength. Patrick Summers returns to the San Francisco Opera podium to conduct the lavish production.
