Lyric tragedy in two acts by Vincenzo Bellini, Libretto by Felice Romani, based on 'Norma, or The Infanticide' by Alexandre Soumet

Premiered on February 27, 2011 at the Zurich Opera House, Zurich, Switzerland

Sung in Italian.

Robert Wilson directed Bellini's belcanto masterpiece Norma for the first time at the Zurich Opera House. The opening was conducted by Paolo Carignani. The production has remained in repertoire and received a revival, under the baton of Fabio Luisi, in 2015.

Bellini’s masterpiece is an ideal object for Wilson’s staged visions. His set creates spaces for the music, in a way that congenially corresponds to the music’s sublime and elegaic atmosphere as well as its dramatic accentuations.
