Utah Opera presents a night of thrilling music and dramatic narrative with Vincenzo Bellini’s “Norma,” in a semi-staged production at Abravanel Hall on May 4th at 7:30 p.m. and May 6th at 7 p.m.
This new production of “Norma,” created by Utah Opera’s Costume Shop and Scenic Studios, will feature costumes designed by Season 12 “Project Runway” finalist Bradon McDonald, and projected images and video designed by Greg Emetaz.
Crystal Manich will direct the production, and Stephen Lord will conduct the Utah Symphony.
Honor, love, and friendship collide in Bellini’s spectacle Norma, considered the pinnacle of the Italian bel canto repertory, to create high drama and vocal pyrotechnics!
The spiritual leader of her people is secretly involved with an officer in the enemy army that occupies her country, a crime that would surely bring the penalty of death. What she doesn’t know is that her closest friend and confidant is also in a romantic relationship with that same officer.
