Sandra Radvanovsky made her Met role debut as "Norma" to rave reviews in 2013. The 2017-2018 season opens (September 25) with a new production of Bellini's masterpiece, starring Radvanovsky as the Druid priestess and Joyce DiDonato as her archrival, Adalgisa-a casting coup for bel canto fans. Sir David McVcar's evocative production sets the action deep in the Druid forest where nature and ancient ritual rule. Performance September 28 (8 pm), October 3 (7:30 pm) Few tickets remain - please note "standing room" available night day of performance for $25.
