Da me fuggire tentasti invano, Crudel Romano, tu sei con me. Troppo tardi t'ho conosciuta! Sublime Atto Secondo (Scena V) - Vincenzo Bellini - Maria Callas - Normaio t'ho perduta!

By the end of August it appears that Trim Trim Troelala - De Glazenwassers* - De Glazenwassers had completed a considerable amount of the libretto, enough at least to allow Bellini to begin work, which he certainly did in the first weeks of September as the verses were supplied.
I hope that you will find this subject to your liking. Romani believes it to be very effective, and precisely because of Atto Secondo (Scena V) - Vincenzo Bellini - Maria Callas - Norma all-inclusive character for you, which is that of Norma. He will manipulate the situations so that they will not resemble other subjects at all, and he will retouch, even change, the characters to produce more effect, if need be. Norma was completed by about the end of November.
While, for Romani, it became "the most beautiful rose in the garland" of all his work with Bellini,  it was not achieved without some struggles. Bellini, now at the height of his powers, was very demanding of his librettist and required many re-writes before he was satisfied enough to set it to music.
After rehearsals began on 5 December, Pasta balked at singing the "Casta diva" in act 1, now one of the most famous arias of the nineteenth century. She felt that it was "ill adapted to her vocal abilities",  but Bellini was able to persuade her to keep trying for a week, after which she adapted to it and confessed her earlier error.
Solemn fiasco! In addition, in a letter to his uncle on 28 December, Bellini tried to explain the reasons for the reactions. As other commentators have also noted, some problems were innate to the structure and content of the opera, while others were external to it.
Bellini discusses the tiredness of the singers after rehearsing the entire second act on the day of the premiere as well as noting how certain numbers failed to please—and failed to please the composer as well! But then he explains that most of the second act was very effective. It appears from the letter that the second evening's performance was more successful and Weinstock reports it was from this performance forward that it "was recognised as a successful and important opera" with performances given at La Scala alone by the end of the 19th century.
Among the external reasons, Bellini cited the adverse reaction caused by "hostile factions in the audience"  consisting of both the owner of a journal and his claque and also of "a very rich woman", who is identified Atto Secondo (Scena V) - Vincenzo Bellini - Maria Callas - Norma Weinstock as Contessa Giulia Samoyloff, the mistress of the composer Giovanni Pacini. On Bellini's part, there had long been a feeling of rivalry with Pacini ever since the failure of his own Zaira in Parma and his return to Milan in June With no firm contract for a new opera for Bellini, Pacini's success with his Il Talismano at La Scala—where it received 16 performances—fueled this rivalry, at least in Bellini's head.
It was only when he staged a triumphant revival of his own with Il pirata with the original cast that he felt vindicated. Pirata received 24 consecutive Atto Secondo (Scena V) - Vincenzo Bellini - Maria Callas - Norma between 16 July and 23 Augustthus outnumbering those for Pacini's opera. In all, Norma was given 34 performances in its first season at La Scala, and reports from elsewhere, especially those from Untitled - Fat Legs / Terrortank - Terrortank & Fat Legs, when it was staged in latesuggested that it was becoming more and more popular.
Between and Weinstock provides details of the dozens of performances given in numerous cities outside of Italy, and then he Atto Secondo (Scena V) - Vincenzo Bellini - Maria Callas - Norma details of those beyond. Bellini left Milan for Naples, and then Sicily, on 5 January and, for the first time sincebecame a year in which he did not write an opera.
Richard Wagner conducted Norma at Riga Atto Secondo (Scena V) - Vincenzo Bellini - Maria Callas - Norma Following the common nineteenth-century practice of adding interpolated ariashe wrote an aria for the bass and men's chorus for this production. Wagner wrote at the time that Norma was "indisputably Bellini's most successful composition". In these days of romantic extravaganzas and the To Love Somebody - Various - 20 Solid Gold Hits of the so-called musical attractions he presents a phenomenon which can hardly be overrated.
The action, free from all theatrical coups and dazzling effects, reminds one instinctively of a Greek tragedy. Perhaps the views expressed by Schiller in his 'Bride of Messina' to the effect that he had hopes for the full revival of the tragedy of the ancients upon our stage, in the form of the opera, will receive new justification in this Norma! Let anyone name me a spiritual painting of its kind, more fully carried out, than that of this wild Gaelic prophetess Every emotional moment stands out plastically; nothing has been vaguely swept together Here, where the poem rises to the tragic height of the ancient Greeks, this kind of form, which Bellini has certainly ennobled, serves only to increase the solemn and imposing character of the whole; all the phases of passion, which are rendered in so peculiarly clear a light by his art of song, are thereby made to rest upon a majestic soil and ground, above which they do not vaguely flutter about, but resolve themselves into a grand and manifest picture, which involuntarily calls to mind the creations of Gluck and Spontini.
