About This Work

A Scene from the Opera ‘Norma’by Vincenzo Bellini – which in short is; a story about the love affair between Pollione, Roman proconsul, Norma, his former companion, and the young Adalgisa, daughter of Oroveso of the Druids. Norma discovers that her lover is in love with her friend- the young priestess Adalgisa and tries to convince Pollione to give up Adalgisa and return to her, but he refuses. Norma then publicly confesses her fault and is sentenced to death. Pollione is convicted for pursuing Adalgisa in the temple and goes to the stake with Norma.
