Camille Saint-Saëns – ‘Printemps qui commence’

Camille Saint-Saëns’s opera Samson et Dalila was premiered today in Weimar in 1877; below is a recording of Maria Callas, born on the same day 46 years later, performing ‘Printemps qui commence’. This aria is from the end of the first act, after Delilah attempts to seduce Samson.
