Tune of the Day: Casta diva
from Bellini's opera “Norma”
“Casta diva” is definitely one of the most famous arias of the 19th century. It is sung in Act I of Vincenzo Bellini's 1831 opera Norma, a leading example of the bel canto (literally “beautiful singing”) genre.
Thanks to Joe for suggesting this piece!
