Description

Norma (1955) (CD) - Callas

With Maria Callas near or at her vocal and dramatic peak, and Giulietta Simionato and Mario del Monaco added to the mix, one has little if any room for improvement in the casting of Vincenzo Bellini’s dramatic masterpiece, Norma. Now returned to the active catalog, this July 1955 live performance from the famed La Scala, Milan with a sympathetic Antonino Votti conducting the Orchestra e Coro del Teatro alla Scala, offers a direct transfer from the master tapes.

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.
