Glimpses of Past Performances - Norma 2019

Here is another Glimpse from a recent Heber Opera performance.

In 2019 Heber Opera performed Bellini's opera 'Norma' in various venues around East Sussex. No updating this time! Dorothy Withers, the Director chose to set this opera at the time of the Roman occupation of Britain and captured a world where mystic beliefs compete with human emotions.

In the opera, the priestess Norma has been having a secret relationship with the Pollione, the proconsul of the occupying Roman forces. For this reason, Norma has kept her people from rising up against the Romans. But she discovers that Pollione has been unfaithful! Seeking vengeance, she releases the pent-up aggression of the people and prepares them for battle.
