Royal Opera House: Norma
26 September, 2016 @ 19:15 - 22:15
Tickets on general sale now | £15
We will be showing Bellini’s Norma live from the Royal Opera House on Monday 26th September at 7.15pm
Bellini’s classic bel canto opera is full of wonderful melodies and opportunities for star singing but it is especially known for the 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, which opens the 2016/17 Season.
Doors open 30 minutes before the performance commences. Please arrive in plenty of time to register and, if you wish, order interval drinks.
