For Elina Garanca, there's a clue nestled in the score of Camille Saint-Saens' opera "Samson et Dalila" that suggests the pagan beauty has genuine feelings for the hero she has vowed to destroy.The production, also starring tenor Roberto Alagna as Samson and directed by Tony winner Darko Tresnjak, will be broadcast live in HD to movie theaters worldwide including Beirut's Premiere-Sodeco Saturday.Dalila joins the public ridicule.Garanca began her career in lighter, coloratura roles and "trousers" roles playing men, but at age 42, she said her voice has become "more feminine and voluptuous" and she has been moving into weightier parts."Samson et Dalila," featuring Elina Garanca and Laurent Naouri, and conducted by Mark Elder, will be projected Saturday, Oct. 20, at Premiere-Sodeco.
