Join WYLA for the Met Opera's Norma on Nov. 18 @ 1 p.m.

The 2017–18 season opens with a new production of Bellini’s masterpiece Norma, starring Sondra Radvanovsky as the Druid priestess and Joyce DiDonato as her archrival, Adalgisa—a casting coup for bel canto fans. Tenor Joseph Calleja is Pollione, Norma’s unfaithful lover, and Carlo Rizzi conducts. Sir David McVicar’s evocative production sets the action deep in a Druid forest where nature and ancient ritual rule.
