At The Opera, Vincenzo Bellini: Norma May 3, 2014

  

Norma is an opera in two acts by Vincenzo Bellini with libretto by Felice Romani after Norma by Alexandre Soumet. First produced at La Scala on December 26, 1831, it is regarded as a leading example of the bel canto (beautiful singing) genre. "Casta diva", in Act 1, is one of the most famous arias of the nineteenth century. This thrilling live 1955 performance stars Maria Callas and Mario del Monaco. Tullio Serafin conducts.
