To open the Met's 2017-18 season, powerhouse soprano Sondra Radvanovsky tackled one of opera's most fearsome roles, the title druid priestess of Bellini's Norma, who wrestles with love and betrayal before making the ultimate sacrifice on a funeral pyre.

Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato sang Norma's friend and rival, Adalgisa, in Sir David McVicar's evocative production.

.."Two decades and 200 performances into her Metropolitan Opera career, soprano Sondra Radvanovsky achieved ultimate prima donna status last night. Wielding a potent voice and fierce determination, she opened the company's season with a gripping and insightful performance of Vincenzo Bellini's Norma....conductor Carlo Rizzi offered much support, leading the Met orchestra with alert, flexible tempos and opening a number of small cuts that, shamefully, are still regarded as standard in most opera houses."
