“Ponselle, Milanov, Sutherland, Callas… after last night, Radvanovsky can add her name to the list,” declared The Huffington Post when Sondra Radvanovsky made her Met debut as Norma in 2013. The 2017-18 season opens with a new production of Bellini’s masterpiece, starring her 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 husband, and Carlo Rizzi conducts. Sir David McVicar’s evocative production sets the action in a Druid forest where nature and ancient rituals rule.
