Vodafone Malta Foundation is once again extending its support to Teatru Astra, Gozo, for the production of popular opera Norma to be staged Thursday 27th and Saturday 29th October. Acclaimed Greek soprano Dimitra Theodossiou plays the demanding title-role. Her 2007 interpretation of Norma in Macerata, Italy earned her wide praise. She is joined by a strong cast - tenor Antonino Interisano as Pollione, mezzo-soprano Oana Andra as Adalgisa and bass Dario Russo as Oroveso. The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra is directed by Prof Mro Joseph Vella and the Teatru Astra Opera Chorus by Maria Frendo. Stage direction is in the hands of Enrico Stinchelli. Norma opens the 10th edition of Festival Mediterranea. The festival runs until 19 November. More information is available on www.mediterranea.com.mt or by calling 21550985/99883007.
