Dalila’s aria, mon coeur s’ouvre à ta voix is in our concert programme. It is a very popular aria from Camille Saint-Saëns's opera Samson and Delilah, known in English as "Softly awakes my heart", or literally translated as "My heart opens itself to your voice."
Saint-Saëns wrote 13 operas but he was disappointed that only Samson et Delila achieved lasting success.
