This is the first of Callas's two complete recordings of her signature role, the druid priestess Norma, in which she has remained unrivaled for 50 years. The conductor is Callas's mentor, Tullio Serafin.

This production captures her voice in its imposing early prime, while in the two famous duets for Norma and Adalgisa she is partnered with Ebe Stignani, generally considered the greatest Italian mezzo-soprano of her era.

 

History

Vincenzo Bellini’s Norma

Bellini’s tragic tale of a tormented priestess caught in a love triangle, first heard in 1831, features one of the greatest bel canto roles in the soprano repertoire. The title heroine’s aria “Casta diva” has become synonymous with this style, which combines a wealth of melody with long legato lines and vocal fireworks.
