Norma by Vincenzo Bellini( )

53 editions published between 1951 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this complete studio recording of a newly prepared critical edition -- the first on period instruments -- Giovanni Antonini and Cecilia Bartoli reveal Norma's authentic pre-Romantic roots and return to Bellini's original conception. The role of Norma was written for Giuditta Pasta, who sang what today's listeners would consider to be mezzo-soprano roles, while Adalgisa was conceived for a light silvery soprano. With Cecilia Bartoli and Sumi Jo heard here for the first time on record together, this iconic opera has been restored as Bellini originally intended."--Container

One of the absolute highlights of her extraordinary career, Maria Callas' 1957 performances of this Donizetti opera brought new life to a bel canto opera that had long fallen out of favor. The central role was ideally suited to her talents and she once again had Luchino Viscontias her director. Anna's rival, Giovanna Seymour, was sung by one of Callas' most trusted colleagues, the superb mezzo-soprano Giulietta Simionato

When this production opened, it had been more than half a century since Met audiences had last heard Bellini's gem of an opera. It was well worth the wait. "The best cast in the world," was how one critic described the legendary performers the Met brought together. The pair sent audiences into a frenzy with their sumptuous, dazzling singing. Joan Sutherland, dubbed "La Stupenda" by her fans and the press, is the hapless heroine Elvira who loses her heart--and her sanity--over Luciano Pavarotti, the Cavalier hero torn between love and duty

When Norma learns of Pollione's faithlessness, she threatens to kill the two children. Before she can do this, the Druid temple priests apprehend Pollione as he attempts to abscond with their sacred virgin, Adalgisa. The priests build a pyre to burn Pollione to death. Norma relents.
