Notes & Reviews:

"Norma. Diva. Callas. Three keywords that are the core of Joosten's staging. A diva in a Callas costume who, as Norma, loses her way in the labyrinths of the opera world and who can no longer distinguish between the drama on stage and reality. Joosten's stage interpretation offers interesting contemplations on opera business and on the role and character of a star soprano in a typical Callas situation. The story starts as an opera in an opera, but gradually the boundaries between theatre and reality become more and more ambivalent... great class!" -Trouw
