Mornings with the Maestro “Norma: The Consummate Bel Canto”
St. Petersburg Opera Company presents
“Norma: The Consummate Bel Canto”
at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg – Marly Room
Friday, May 16, 2014
Bel canto is the art of beautiful singing and Norma is bel canto at its best. Bellini wrote great musical lines for his stars, full of extended coloratura phrases, beautiful melodies, and fiendishly difficult passages. Some of opera’s most gorgeous duets are in this opera. Maestro Sforzini and the cast of Norma will illustrate with powerful musical numbers the classic plot of the woman who is thrown over by the man of her dreams when he falls for the younger, if not blonder, model.
