In Bellini's supreme tragedy, Sondra Radvanovsky is the tormented High Priestess of Gaul - Norma, who has secretly broken her vows to love Pollione, the roman commander. Pollione is no longer in love with Norma and is now in love with the young novice priestess, Adalgisa, who he convinced to flee to Rome with him.

Not to be missed, Norma was aired live at Carib 5 on October 7, and is now back on screen for an encore performance this Sunday, 11:30 a.m. at the Palace Cineplex.
