Bellini's masterpiece boasts one of the most famous arias in all of opera, the beautiful "Casta diva." Directed by Sir David McVicar, this evocative new production sets the action deep in a Druid forest, where nature and ancient ritual rule. The priestess Norma is torn between loyalty to her oppressed people and love for a Roman soldier. On the eve of a Druid revolt, she must choose between two agonising betrayals-only to learn that she herself has already been betrayed. Sondra Radvanovsky as Norma and Joyce DiDonato as her rival Adalgisa lead a cast of bel canto heavyweights, with Joseph Calleja as Norma's unfaithful lover, Pollione, and British favourite Matthew Rose returning to the Met as Norma's father, Oroveso.
