Sung in Italian with projected English translation
Appropriate for all ages
A tale of forbidden love with tragic consequences.
Returning to HGO after 25 years, Norma, the summit of the bel canto opera tradition, is a reworking of the Euripidean tragedy Medea. A high priestess finds herself in a spiritual crisis, making the ultimate sacrifice after being scorned by the father of her children and forced to choose between love and duty.
Vocal acrobatics abound with melodies ranging from the stunningly serene “Casta diva” to the fury of fireworks that explode as Norma’s rage overflows.
