This is the first time we get an opera by Bellini since this group exists, so I don't want to miss it. It is a Thursday night - sorry could not choose any other date. Norma, that premiered in Protected content , is the most famous opera by Bellini, and includes the aria "Casta Diva", that has become one of the symbols of Italian opera and of bel canto - I attach the link on youtube where you can listen to Maria Callas singing it, she is so beautiful! We will hear in Liege Patrizia Ciofi. The story is ispired by the Greek myth of Medea, so highly dramatic.
