Norma

In ancient Gaul, the Druid high priestess Norma has borne two children fathered by an enemy Roman military commander. When he abandons her and seduces her younger colleague Adalgisa, Norma vows revenge and nothing is off the table. Let the vocal fireworks begin! From the sublime prayer “Casta diva” to the plaintive duet “Mira, o Norma” capped by a dazzling cabaletta, Norma stands at the pinnacle of the bel canto repertoire.
