BELLINI’S NORMA - LIVE FROM THE MET

BELLINI’S NORMA - LIVE FROM THE MET

PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA

at Alderman Peel High School,Wells NR23 1RB


Conductor: Carlo Rizzi

The season opens with a new production of Bellini’s bel canto tragedy Norma, starring Sondra Radvanovsky in the title role, which she has sung to acclaim at the Met in 2013. Joyce DiDonato co-stars as Norma’s colleague and rival, Adalgisa, opposite Joseph Calleja as Pollione and Matthew Rose as Oroveso.                                               Bellini’s masterpiece boasts one of the most famous arias in all of opera, the beautiful “Casta diva.”

Directed by Sir David McVicar, this evocative new production sets the action deep in a Druid forest, where nature and ancient ritual rule. The priestess Norma is torn between loyalty to her oppressed people and love for a Roman soldier. On the eve of a Druid revolt, she must choose between two agonising betrayals—only to learn that she herself has already been betrayed
