Photo Coverage: First Look at Bellini's NORMA at English National Opera

A close-knit community's way of life is threatened by unstoppable change. The people want war. Their priestess Norma, secretly in love with one of the enemy, resists. But now he has a new love. And in the face of his betrayal, it seems Norma is prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Award-winning director Christopher Alden returns to ENO for our first-ever production of Bellini's masterpiece, NORMA. Celebrated for its finely shaped melodies and exquisite arias, NORMA is full of ravishing music. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

This critically acclaimed production sets the action in a rural community in the mid-19th century. Rising star soprano Marjorie Owens sings the demanding title role, alongside Peter Auty as the love-rat Pollione who cheats on her. Bel canto specialist Stephen Lord conducts.
