The Cultural Exchange Section at Kanazawa City Hall is organizing a week of French Arts for the first week of May, during which a variety of French events will be organized to share and show off the charming French culture to the Ishikawa public.

On May 8th at 7pm musical pieces and excerpts from the French opera, “Samson and Delilah”, composed by Camille Saint-Saens will be performed at the Kanazawa Bunka Hall (Cultural Hall).  Doors open at 6:30pm.

The opera is based on the biblical tale of Samson and Delilah.  Samson, a man bestowed with incredible strength, falls in love with Delilah, who tries to figure out the secret of Samson’s strength and rob him of it.


Tickets are 1,500 yen and can be purchased through the Ticket Pia at Family Mart/Circle K/Sunkus, at Daiwa Korinbo (8th floor), the Ishikawa Ongakudo, the Kanazawa Bunka Hall or the Kanazawa Citizen’s Art Center.
