Sampson Nazaraios (from the Greek bible)
Duration: about 20 minutes
(This was originally performed as part 1 of a double bill with Samson Agonistes.)
Sampson Nazaraios is a distillation of the biblical story (Judges 13-16), using the Greek translation of more than 2000 years ago. It is packed with action (the riddle, the first marriage, revenge, Dalilah, shearing and blinding).
Note that the slides include the other half of the Samson double-bill, Samson Agonistes. Sampson Nazaraios is the first part.
