Norma – 'Casta Diva'

Extracts | Bellini

The priest Oroveso and the druids visit the priestess Norma: they want to declare war on the Romans who occupy their land. Norma, who's in love with the Roman Pollione, sings a prayer to the goddess of the moon, asking for peace: "Calm the fire that burns in these hearts".
