Norma is considered Vincenzo Bellini's magnum opus, and the apex of the bel canto operatic style. The titular high priestess is filled with treasonous desire for a Roman soldier, forcing her to choose between duty and love. Flowing, lyrical melodies - including the infamously difficult soprano aria "Casta Diva" - heighten this sweeping drama. Don't miss this acclaimed performance from the stunning outdoor arena stage at the Teatro Antico Taormina, Italy, which Stampa Italia calls "a triumphant success." Starring Gregory Kunde, Irina Lungu, Giacomo Prestia, and the "elegant and expressive" Chiara Taigi as Norma.

Director: Enrico Castiglione
Writer: Vincenzo Bellini
Cast: Chiara Taig, Gregory Kunde, Irina Lungu and Giacomo Prestia
