Bellini’s Norma centers around a clandestine love affair during the Gallic-Roman wars. The story focuses on a Druid high priestess, whose role demands a strict vow of celibacy. But she has violated that code by falling in love with the leader of the occupying army and leads a double life to conceal her secret.
