At the Opera, Bellini: Norma, 7/27/2013

  

Norma is an opera in two acts by Vincenzo Bellini with libretto by Felice Romani. First produced at La Scala on December 26, 1831, it is generally regarded as an example of the supreme height of the bel canto tradition. "Casta diva" was one of the most familiar arias of the nineteenth century. This 1954 recording stars Maria Callas, Mario Filippeschi, Ebe Stignani and Nicola Rossi-Lemeni. Tullio Serafin conducts the Chorus and Orchestra of the Teatro alla Scala.
