Bellini: Norma DVD (The Royal Opera)

Star soprano Sonya Yoncheva sings the towering role of Bellini’s Norma – a priestess torn between love and duty – in a timeless tale of love and betrayal, set in a fanatically religious and wartorn modern society. The spectacular production by Àlex Ollé for The Royal Opera also stars Joseph Calleja as Norma’s former lover Pollione, leader of the forces occupying her country, Brindley Sherratt as her domineering father Oroveso, and Sonia Ganassi as Adalgisa, her greatest friend and unwitting rival in love. Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano leads this superb cast, the Royal Opera Chorus and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House in one of the greatest works of the bel canto repertory.
