Norma

Norma: Edita Gruberova Vincenzo Bellini: Norma Vincenzo Bellini: Norma. Edita Gruberova, Elina Garanca
Vincenzo Bellini
Felice Romani

A grand decorative opera on the one hand: ancient saga! War between Rome and Gaul, but Norma is also a psychologically fine-grained chamber play about a highly complex woman in the throes of terrible conflicts: Norma, high priestess of the Druids and mistress of the Roman proconsul Pollione. When she is betrayed, this "Casta Diva", this "chaste goddess" is determined to take revenge. It all ends terribly: a love-death burning at the stake! The madness, ecstasy and beauty of total bel canto!
