I don't know exactly what the phrase "such brilliance" is. Many people believe that Sarah Bernhardt was the greatest actress in the world. When she was about sixteen, a friend of her mother’s suggested that she study acting. Sarah wasn’t sure about it, but she gave it a try. She chose a scene to perform for the examination to enter the French government’s acting school. When she began the scene, the judges stopped her. They wanted her to choose a boy to act in the scene with her. But Sarah had practiced alone, so she refused. The judges were shocked, but they offered to let Sarah perform something else. Instead, she chose to tell a story she knew. This was very unusual because the judges wanted her to act, not tell a story. But Sarah insisted. She told the story with such brilliance that she was accepted even before she finished. She told the story with such brilliance I don't know exactly what the phrase "such brilliance" is. Please help me! Thanks!

In this context, "such" means "a great amount of". "such brilliance" = "a great amount of brilliance".
