Opera Southwest: Bellini’s Norma

Overview

Bellini’s Norma is a fully-staged opera with orchestra, sung in Italian with English supertitles and presented in two acts with one intermission. This will be the New Mexico premiere of Bellini’s bel canto masterpiece.

Norma tells the story of the Druid priestess who sacrifices it all for love and loyalty, despite ultimate betrayal. Watch one of the most challenging, and breathtakingly beautiful, roles in the soprano repertoire. From Casta Diva to Mira to Norma, there’s not a second of music in the opera that won’t leave you feeling awestruck and inspired. Maestro Anthony Barrese conducts.
