Another dangerous operatic triangle

July 27, 2016

Norma (1831) composed by Vincenzo Belini (1801-1835) and based upon the libretto by Felice Romani (1788-1865) tells the epic story of a Druid priestess who breaks her vows and bears two children of a Roman soldier only to discover he has fallen in love with a younger woman. This quintessential bel canto opera was one of the first to be performed in Gold Rush San Francisco.

    I really enjoyed your interview on the SLA-SF blog and was glad to know that you are a creative person as well! Thanks for taking the time to explain your very interesting job. It sounds great! It sounds like it has the right amount of reference, TS and background research.
