"Gruberova brings a lifetime's experience of singing bel canto opera and caresses Bellini's vocal lines with many subtle touches… Every phrase is moulded with the feeling and reticence of a great artist." – Gramophone

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.
