Bluegrass at Garrett Lakes Festival
The Garrett Lakes Arts Festival presents Johnny Staats and the Delivery Boys.
Bellini's Norma, including the infamously difficult soprano aria "Casta Diva," is considered the apex of the bel canto operatic style. The titular high priestess is filled with treasonous desire for a Roman soldier, forcing her to choose between duty and love. Shown in HD from the outdoor arena stage at the Teatro Antico Taormina, Italy.
