Ms. Meade sounded in complete command of the role, delivering the character's charged, defiant dramatic recitative with gleaming sound and incisive attack.

Why See Washington National Opera: Norma?

Bellini's opera, Norma, tells the story of a druid priestess and her secret love affair - carried out across enemy lines - in the midst of the Gallic-Roman wars. Her lover's affections start to turn however, turning the once passionate priestess into a vengeful and angry warrior.

This new production by the Washington National Opera sees rising opera star Angela Meade play the lead role of Norma, her first time playing this challenging part on the stage. She stars opposite mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick, who sings the role of Norma's rival, Adalgisa.
