Norma

Norma
by Vincenzo Bellini

Norma, a bel canto masterpiece, is a passionate tale of love and betrayal, featuring some of opera's greatest hits, such as Casta Diva. It is a striking exploration of one woman's emotional journey from heartbreak and fury to honor and nobility. Torn apart by her passion for a man who no longer loves her, Norma struggles between adhering to honor and succumbing to revenge.
