Love, loyalty & the ultimate betrayal.
Honor, love, and friendship collide in Bellini’s spectacle Norma, considered the pinnacle of the Italian bel canto repertory, to create high drama and vocal pyrotechnics! The spiritual leader of her people is secretly involved with an officer in the enemy army that occupies her country, a crime that would surely bring the penalty of death. What she doesn’t know is that her closest friend and confidant is also in a romantic relationship with that same officer. Hear some of opera’s most passionate and technically demanding vocalism as lies and secrets are revealed in this new production with costumes by season 12 Project Runway finalist Bradon McDonald.
Sung in Italian with English supertitles projected.
GENERAL AGE GUIDELINE: Individuals ages five and older are welcome at this performance. Parents should ensure their children are able to sit quietly through the performance without disturbing others around them. No babes in arms will be admitted.
