Live in HD Host: Deborah Voigt
This new production of Bellini's masterpiece stars Sondra Radvanovsky as the Druid priestess and Joyce DiDonato as her friend and rival, Adalgisa-a casting coup for bel canto fans. Tenor Joseph Calleja is Pollione, Norma's unfaithful lover, and Carlo Rizzi conducts. Sir David McVicar's evocative production sets the action deep in a Druid forest where nature and ancient ritual rule.
"Sondra Radvanovsky and Joyce DiDonato triumph in a new Norma...An inspired performance in a striking new production...Radvanovsky surpassed all expectations...A stunning performance by DiDonato...A standing ovation that went on and on." -Huffington Post
"Radvanovsky, with her bright, powerful voice and dramatic fervor, excelled ... DiDonato's melting tone and natural richness of voice were ideal ... Both singers give their all in affecting performances ... Joseph Calleja's voice is ... burnished and ardent ... With McVicar's staging, the greatness of this Bellini opera came through in scene after scene." -New York Times
