Second round of Norma reviews

reviews are still keeping us blushing.

"In fact, the singing in this opera is simply mind-blowing; it is constant, it is varied, and it is deeply stirring." - Epoch Times

"...Hasmik Papian's electrifying voice had me in goosebumps all evening long. The duets between Norma and Adalgisa are almost unbearably beautiful - so exquisitely precise and powerful, I didn't know whether to weep or jump out of my seat." - Vancouver Sun

"Richard Margison, B.C.'s own world-class tenor, filled the shoes of Norma’s illicit partner Pollione with effortless grace. He had the well-rounded tones to test the Queen Elizabeth’s new sound upgrade, and both could be given high marks." The Tyee
