Program notes

On the day of the open-air performance of Vincenzo Bellini's Norma in 1974, a violent storm blows through the Roman amphitheatre in the ancient town of Orange. Nine thousand spectators have already taken their seats, but there is disagreement backstage as to whether the performance should go ahead. The diva taking on the title role is Montserrat Caballé, an established star who has astonished audiences at the Met and La Scala, as well as in Moscow, Barcelona and London. Despite the adverse conditions, Caballé and her fellow vocalists decide to perform.
