The Knoxville Opera is one of only two companies producing Bellini's opera, "Norma," this year. (The other company being the Metropolitan Opera in NYC). A few days ago, Melony Dodson talked with stage director, Elizabeth Bachmann, about this beautiful, but rarely performed work. Its challenges, rewards, beautiful floating melodies, and strong characters are all topics that are discussed in this conversation. "Norma" is a rare gem and one that you probably won't want to miss.
