The Metropolitan Opera: Norma Encore Synopsis

An encore performance of Bellini's Norma will be shown in select cinemas nationwide on Wednesday, October 11. This new production of Bellini's masterpiece stars Sondra Radvanovsky as the Druid priestess and Joyce DiDonato as her rival, Adalgisa-a casting coup for bel canto fans. Tenor Joseph Calleja is Pollione, Norma's unfaithful lover, and Carlo Rizzi conducts. Sir David McVicar's evocative production sets the action deep in a Druid forest where nature and ancient ritual rule.
