Sunday 08. Mar. 2020, 6.00 pm | Main Stage Premiere

Vincenzo Bellini


Introduction at 5.20 pm

In the darkness of a forest, a priestess entreats the goddess of the moon for peace. There is war everywhere: between men and women, father and daughter, a struggle for land and people, fuelled by love, sex and faith – at the risk of personal happiness. Everyone seems willing to die and sacrifice: themselves, the enemy, their own children. Norma secretly loved the enemy, hiding their children and threatening her rival. Now she herself is betrayed. She treads a path of suffering through rage and desperation, ultimately leading her to a pyre she sets on fire herself. It is a sacrifice of a mother who was willing to kill her children; of a leader who instigated a war; of an unhappy woman who gives herself over to the flames: Norma must die. Does love triumph in the end?
