About

In Guy Joostenís ingenious production of Belliniís masterpiece, Norma is about more than just beautiful singing. It becomes a layered, timeless drama in which Norma is the archetypal successful woman struggling to retain her dominant but vulnerable position.

Hasmik Papianís lyrical and intense interpretation of the title role accentuates the striking similarity between a Druid high priestess and a modern opera diva.

Conductor Julian Reynolds guides the brilliant cast, choir and Netherlands Chamber Orchestra to great heights, providing a refreshing new take on the chef díoeuvre of bel canto.
