Royal Opera 2016/2017 Season: Norma Film Poster


This new production of Norma for The Royal Opera is distinguished by a superlative cast of internationally renowned singers. Bellini’s classic bel canto opera is full of wonderful melodies and opportunities for star singing. But it is especially known for Norma's stunning showpiece aria, ‘Casta diva’. Alex 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.
