Come Back to me

After finding herself raised up to the level of some of the genre's most celebrated singers on her 2013 debut in the role, Sondra Radvanovsky returns to the Met as Bellini's iconic high-priestess, one of the most ambitious parts in the soprano repertoire. This explosive new production by Sir David McVicar opens the Met's 2017/18 season and also features Joyce DiDonato as Adalgisa and tenor Joseph Calleja as the unfaithful Pollione. Perfect for fans of Bel Canto, drama and passion!

Norma is the story of a high priestess whose people are threatened by the invasion of the Roman army. Torn between duty and desire, Norma falls in love with Pollione, a soldier, and bears his children. When Pollione's eye strays to her protege Adalgisa, Norma is stuck in a quagmire, should she reveal her betrayal to her people? War and the anger of the gods is invoked in this highly emotive drama that pits love against the bitter-sweet taste of revenge.
