Descripción

LYRICAL TRAGEDY IN TWO ACTS (1831)
LIBRETTO BY FELICE ROMANI
BASED ON THE TRAGEDY NORMA, OSSIA L'INFANTICIDE BY ALEXANDRE SOUMET

The unquestionable summit of Italian bel canto, Norma crowns the brief but intense career of the Sicilian composer Vincenzo Bellini.

The priestess of the Druids, mother of two children conceived in secret with the Roman proconsul Pollione, makes up a complex and fascinating character. Pollione's love for Adalgisa, Norma's rival priestess, succeeds in jeopardizing the delicate military balance with Rome. Norma is one of the greatest challenges for any soprano, both for her vocalism and her dramatic commitment. The opera contains one of the most beautiful arias in the lyrical repertoire, “Casta diva” and a thrilling finale.
