March 6, 1994: Samson et Dalila in Vienna (I was not there)

1994-03-06 Samson et Dalila, (Saint-Saëns), Wiener Staatsoper

Dalila = Agnes Baltsa
Samson = Josep Carreras
Le Grand-Prêtre de Dagon = Eduard Tumagian
Abimélech = Istvan Gati
Un vieillard hébreu = Goran Simic
Un messager philistin = Ruben Broitman
Premier philistin = Franz Kasemann
Second philistin = Peter Köves

Jacques Delacôte, conductor

I wish I was there to see this Samson et Dalila in Vienna State Opera instead of Zurich to see Fedora. Strangely I have the program for SD in Vienna but no program of Fedora in Zurich.

In 1996 finally I saw Samson et Dalila with Baltsa/Carreras. In 1998 finally Fedora with Baltsa/Carreras. Both in Zurich.
