Russia's Olesya Petrova performs Mon coeur s'ouvre à ta voix (Samson et Dalila) by Saint-Saëns, in concert one of the 2011 competition.

Last updated: 14 June 2011

Dalila responds to Samson's declaration of love. She declares that her heart opens to his voice, and she longs for him to respond to her caresses and make her drunk with his love. It is all a ploy to get him to reveal the source of his strength to her.
