Norma tells the story of a powerful woman who compromises her ideals for love, only to be betrayed by her lover. Shondra Radvanovsky stars as the Druid priestess Norma, Joyce DiDonato as her archrival Adalgisa, and tenor Joseph Calleja as Pollione, Norma's unfaithful lover. Carlo Rizzi conducts and Sir David McVicar's evocative production sets the action deep in a Druid forest where nature and ancient ritual rule. This Bellini masterpiece overflows with sublime melody, vocal challenge, and dramatic power.
