"Norma shows the greatest heights of Bellini's talent" Richard Wagner repeatedly said. There is an "abundance of song" in the opera’s most famous aria, «Casta diva,» in which Norma extols the goddess of the moon. in Bellini’s masterpiece, there is a lot of contrast between moments of above the clouds transcendence and thrilling drama. This polarity reflects the inner turmoil of the Gallic priestess: Norma, under a vow of chastity, but in love with the proconsul of the enemy occupiers, - withwhom she has two boys. When Pollione betrays her with the younger novice Adalgisa, she plots her revenge, and even considers murdering her own children.

The opera starts at 20:15
There are German and English surtitles.
