NORMA BY BELLINI SATURDAY, MAY 25TH, 7:30PM & SUNDAY, JUNE 2ND, 3:00PM, 2019VETERANS MEMORIAL BUILDING, SANTA CRUZ WINE AND LIGHT APPETIZERS INCLUDED IN THE TICKET PRICE Written by Romantic-era Italian composer Vincenzo Bellini in 1831, Norma is a tragedia lirica in two acts that take place in 50 B.C. Gaul. It features Bellini's signature long melodies and is considered a masterpiece of the bel canto genre, which is defined by a highly expressive style of singing. Norma also features one of the all-time great soprano arias, Casta Diva. As such, the opera is considered a defining role for operatic sopranos. The priestess Norma has had an illicit affair with Pollione, an officer in the forces occupying her land, and has had two children by him. Pollione has now tired of Norma and taken up with the younger priestess Adalgisa. Meanwhile, Norma’s people cry out for rebellion against the occupying forces. Will Norma take revenge on Pollione, and will her people discover her secret?
