Norma by: Vincenzo Bellini
The tragic tale of the druidic priestess and her fatal love for the enemy of her people. Featuring one of the most beloved soprano arias of all time “Casta Diva.”A High-priestess of the Celts secretly loves and bears two children to Pollione, a Roman. She has been betrayed by Pollione who now pursues Adalgisa, a temple virgin. By denouncing Pollione, Norma condemns him to death. Accepting her own guilt, she gives her children to Adalgisa and joins Pollione in death. Considered to be the height of bel canto genius, Bellini’s Norma is the perfect melding of drama, poetry and gorgeous melody!
