Saint-Saëns began working on Samson and Delilah in 1867, just two years after completing his first (and as then yet unperformed) opera, Le timbre d’argent. The first performance took place in Weimar at the Grossherzogliches Theater (now the Staatskapelle Weimar) on December 2, 1877, in a German translation.
