"In this complete studio recording of a newly prepared critical edition -- the first on period instruments -- Giovanni Antonini and Cecilia Bartoli reveal Norma's authentic pre-Romantic roots and return to Bellini's original conception. The role of Norma was written for Giuditta Pasta, who sang what today's listeners would consider to be mezzo-soprano roles, while Adalgisa was conceived for a light silvery soprano. With Cecilia Bartoli and Sumi Jo heard here for the first time on record together, this iconic opera has been restored as Bellini originally intended."--Container.

I don't know how one can enjoy an opera without seeing it; at any rate I was listening in order to hear Bellini's melodies (he is reputed to be one of the greatest of melody inventors (discoverers?)). This opera has several catchy tunes, though none were extraordinary, though I did especially like track 8 of disc one.
