Vincenzo Bellini’s Norma at Royal Opera House Muscat

Royal Opera House Muscat will present Norma, an opera by Vincenzo Bellini performed by Opéra de Rouen, a new co-production by ROHM and Opéra de Rouen.

Bellini’s 1831 belcanto masterpiece, Norma, is a lyrical tragedy about a priestess of the ancient Druids whose ill-fated love for Pollione, an unfaithful Roman conqueror, leads to powerful consequences.

The tragic heroine’s role has challenged the world’s greatest sopranos, including twentieth-century legends Maria Callas, Joan Sutherland, and Montserrat Caballé.

ROHM will play the show at 7pm on Feb 22 and Feb 25.
