Met Opera: Norma
The Society of the Four Arts
This opera is an extraordinary fusion of sublime melody, vocal challenge, and dramatic power. It examines an ageless and archetypal situation: a powerful woman compromises her ideals for love, only to find herself betrayed by her lover. But equally gripping is her relationship with the younger woman who is the new object of her former lover’s attention and in whom Norma (Sondra Radvanovsky) sees both a rival and a second self. The title role demands Radvanovsky have dramatic vocal power combined with the agility and technique of a coloratura singer. It is a daunting challenge that few can rise to: those who have are part of operatic lore. Carlo Rizzi conducts, and Sir David McVicar’s evocative production sets the action deep in a Druid forest where nature and ancient ritual rule.
Estimated run time: 3 hours 29 minutes
