Pollione, a Roman Proconsul, has two children by Norma, a Druid priestess, in the course of a long relationship. Norma isn't as young and beautiful as once she was. A temple virgin, Adalgisa, is young and beautiful. Pollione must have her. He has importuned the young virgin to run away with him to Rome, and she has finally agreed. 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. Instead of killing the children, she blames herself for her misery and climbs onto the pyre to die with Pollione
I puritani by Vincenzo Bellini( )

101 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bellini's last opera, set during the time of the English Civil War, is a glorious treasure of melody. Ruth Ann Swenson is Elvira, the lovely Puritan heroine who goes mad when she thinks she has been jilted by her lover, Arturo (Stuart Neill). But he has only been doing his duty as a Cavalier in saving his queen, the widow of King Charles I, from the death sentence imposed by the Puritans. His good deed, and his love for Elvira, condemn him to be executed--a fate from which he is spared by a general amnesty. The shock of joy restores Elvira's sanity and it all ends happily. Thomas Hampson is Riccardo, Arturo's political enemy and rival for Elvira's affection

This performance showcases Luciano Pavarotti at his magnificent best. The role of good hearted Nemorino might have been written just for him. Hopelessly in love with wealthy Adina (Kathleen Battle), Nemorino watches, helpless, as flashy Sergeant Belcore (Gino Quilico) seems to win her heart. Enter Dr. Dulcamara (Paul Plishka). He's a quack, but Nemorino believes that the love potion Dulcamara is peddling will help him win Adina's love. It's only a bottle of plain old Bordeaux, but never underestimate the power of true love -- or of Luciano Pavarotti's seductive tenor
