A tale of forbidden love with tragic consequences.

Returning to HGO after 25 years, Norma, the summit of the bel canto opera tradition, is a reworking of the Euripidean tragedy Medea. A high priestess finds herself in a spiritual crisis, making the ultimate sacrifice after being scorned by the father of her children and forced to choose between love and duty. 

Vocal acrobatics abound with melodies ranging from the stunningly serene “Casta diva” to the fury of fireworks that explode as Norma’s rage overflows.

Single tickets for this production go on sale in August. The best way to secure a seat now is to subscribe.
