A comparison of the Amneris and Dalila photos will show how one's sense of costuming develops.
I made my first appearance as a regular member of the company as Dalila.
And Dalila said to him: How dost thou say thou lovest me, when thy mind is not with me?
The second act commences with Dalila's invocation to love, praying for aid in her design to ensnare Samson.
I seemed to find favour in his sight, and during the Dalila rehearsals he made hot love to me.
After this he loved a woman, who dwelt in the valley of Sorec, and she was called Dalila.
There is no hint of prelatical conspiracy in the enticements of Dalila.
And Dalila said to him again: How long dost thou deceive me, and tell me lies?
I sang many times for the Czar, in "command performances" of Dalila, etc.
Samson is deluded by Dalila: and falls into the hands of the Philistines.
