Description

UNPUBLISHED: not in Vincenzo Bellini Carteggi, edited by G. Seminara (2017); nor in the editions by L. Cambi and C. Neri.  Norma is recognized as Bellini’s masterpiece, and his letters from this crucial time in his career are relatively scarce.  Bellini supervised the very successful staging of Norma in Bergamo on 22 August 1832, with Giuditta Pasta reprising the title role she had created at La Scala only eight months earlier.
