Norma

Uploaded by ehughes
Norma is the tragic tale of a conflict between love and duty. Norma is a Druid priestess in ancient Gaul, which is being occupied by Roman invaders. Norma falls in love with, and bears two children to, the Roman leader Pollione, thereby betraying her own people and breaking her sacred vows. When Norma finds out Pollione is having an affair with another priestess, it pushes her over the edge with deadly consequences. See why Norma is Bellini’s ultimate masterpiece, and why this story of forbidden love has been called ‘opera at its very best.’
