HANDEL’S SAMSON

WA’s first professional performance of Handel’s dramatic oratorio – the legendary story of Samson and Delilah – complete with top soloists and orchestra led by Shaun Lee-Chen, directed by Dr Joseph Nolan.

Delilah’s aria ‘Let the Bright Seraphim’ is an evergreen favourite and will be sung by local legend Sara Macliver. The role of Samson will be sung by Paul McMahon, and WA’s beloved mezzo Fiona Campbell will take the role of Micah.

Samson features the extraordinary St George’s Cathedral Consort and award-winning Australian baritone David Greco, who made his debut with St George’s Concert Series in 2022.

“Littered with thumping choruses and tender arias, the orchestration for Samson is unusually large, even using horns. This will be a gargantuan feast of Baroque music!” – Dr Joseph Nolan
