Erato has announced that the Metropolitan Opera’s new production of “Norma” will be released on DVD.

The production, which opened the Met season last season, starred Sondra Radvanovsky, Joyce DiDonato, and Joseph Calleja. Carlo Rizzi conducted the opera, which received rave reviews and which OperaWire called the production a “success and hearkens to a season of beautiful artistry, great music, and moving performances.”

The new DVD marks the second release of Radvanovsky’s acclaimed interpretation of “Norma” while it marks the seventh complete opera DVD released for DiDonato by her record label Erato. As for Calleja, it marks the second release of his Pollione interpretation. The Royal Opera House previously put out his interpretation on Opus Arte with Sonya Yoncheva starring opposite the tenor.

Erato is set to release the new DVD on Nov. 16, 2018, in time for the holiday season.
