"Norma" at the Royal Opera, 2016

Production by the Catalan collective La Fura del Baus, set design by Alfons Flores, with Sonya Yoncheva as Norma. In Bellini's original Norma is a Gaulish Druid who becomes the lover of a Roman general, but in this version she seems to be part of a Christian cult. You can see the trailer for the film of this production here.
