Vincenzo Bellini's Norma

presented by Verismo Opera

Considered the handsomest man in Europe, bel canto's great composer, Vincenzo Bellini, appeared to be going in a very different direction with Norma. It is a masterpiece filled with verismo styled passion, both in lyric and music. Masterfully telling the story of a Druid Priestess who has not only broken her virginal vows but is secreting two children fathered the Roman soldier Pollione, Norma is riddled with love, intrigue, jealousy, and death on a heroic level. This opera will put a chill up your back. It is truly a masterpiece making one wonder what Bellini could have accomplished had he not died so young.

Traditional staging is featured with magnificent New York City designed sets and full orchestra. (Sung in Italian with English supertitles)
