Bellini’s Norma 1964 Album Review

I take myself back in time to take a look at a recorded version of Bellini’s popular tragic opera starring La Stupenda herself, Dame Joan Sutherland as Norma, and the dramatically versatile, Madame Marilyn Horne as Adalgisa. These two Bel Canto empresses are joined by a veritable troupe of equally versatile singers from the grand yet underrated John Alexander, Richard Cross, and Joseph Ward and the elegant and fabulous Yvonne Minton in her younger years. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.

Ah, Maestro Lawrence Brownlee and Signora Albina Shagimuratova, two fabulous Bel Canto specialists. With their flawless interpretive powers combined, they scored A+’s all across the board in musicality, theatricality, for being complete performers, and for leading a most brilliant ensemble cast. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
