The title role of ?Norma? is one of the toughest in the repertory.

The New York Times

Closed 1 Nov 2013
In this tragic opera, set in the early Roman ages, the high priestess Norma discovers that her lover and father of her children, Pollione, has fallen for a much younger temple virgin. In a fit of rage, Norma decided to kill the two offspring however her love for them, and for Pollione prevents her and ultimately seals both their fate.

Bellini's Norma is an opera which tests even the most capable of sopranos, which is why Sondra Radvanovsky, followed by Angela Meade, is cast in the title role of this production by the Metropolitan Opera.

They are joined by Mezzo-soprano Kate Aldrich as Adalgisa and tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko as Pollione, as well as Riccardo Frizza who conducts.
