This new production of Norma for The Royal Opera is distinguished by a superlative cast of internationally renowned singers. Bellini’s classic bel canto opera is full of wonderful melodies and opportunities for star singing. But it is especially known for Norma’s stunning showpiece aria, ‘Casta diva’. Àlex Ollé of innovative Catalan theatre group La Fura dels Baus directs, bringing a modern edge to this timeless tale of love, rivalry and betrayal, set against a backdrop of war driven by the extremes of a fanatically religious society. Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano conducts this stunning cast, including Joseph Calleja as Norma’s secret lover, Pollione and Sonia Ganassi as the priestess Adalgisa, in a striking new production.

This performance is the part of 2016/17 Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season!
