The final opera for the week is Bellini’s Norma.
One of the greatest of Italian operas, Norma has never lost its grip on the public imagination, and in ‘Casta diva’ contains one of the most prized of all soprano arias. Director Christopher Alden is reunited with soprano Takesha Meshé Kizart, a stunning Tosca for Opera North in 2008, in this new production of Bellini’s masterwork.
Norma opens on Saturday 28 January. For more go here.
