Bellini Norma

Details

Bellini Norma from the Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona

DURATION 182' plus interval

“If we weep from emotion on hearing it, it’s nothing to be ashamed of”. So said Wagner about Bellini’s most famous opera, which he considered the most perfect example of a musical tragedy. And rightly so, because in Norma Italian romanticism reached its pinnacle. This production, by American stage director Kevin Newbury, stresses the ritual aspects of the drama. In Roman-dominated Gaul, the high priestess Norma has broken her vow of chastity by entering a relationship with the Roman pro-consul Pollione, and the birth of their two children has been kept secret. But when she discovers she has a rival, jealousy sets in.
Norma is a classical heroine, passionate and revengeful, and her dilemma provides the starting point for the most successful work by the last and greatest composer of bel canto. Filmed live in February 2015. Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
