Having had so many starry casts and been seen several times on television in two countries, and even been transmitted live to a giant screen on the beach in Barcelona to an audience of thousands, this must bee Francisco Negrin's most seen production. And it is now available on DVD (see the DVD section above for more info). As his first Bel Canto production, it was the source of many lessons learned that Negrin would later apply in his very successful production of Bellini's other masterpiece: I Puritani

"This superlative production gives all its meaning to Norma. Francisco Negrin achieves again what he achieved two years ago here with Mitridate: to give a spine and a symbolic universe to a piece that lacks them as written."
