Joyce To Debut The Title Role Of Norma in Athens, Greece
This August, Joyce debuts the title role of Norma. The cultural organization “Lycophos”, honoring the 100th anniversary of Maria Callas’ birth, presents Bellini’s Norma on August 28 and 30 at the Herodesion, directed by Tom Volf and conducted by Eugene Kohn in collaboration with the National Symphony Orchestra and the Mixed Choir “Fons Musicalis” under the direction of Kostis Konstantaras.
The renowned French director Tom Wolff, who has become the most important collector and expert on the work of Maria Callas with his award-winning documentary “Maria by Callas”, following the sold-out performances of Monica Bellucci who captivated the audience of Athens with a reading of Maria Callas’ letters at the Herodesio in 2021 under his direction, collaborates again with the cultural organization “Twilight” of George Lykiardopoulos and returns to Greece, this time with a brand new production dedicated to the great celebration.
Norma, Callas’ favourite role, which she sang a total of 92 times on stage – more than any other opera – returns to the Herodesion, where Callas herself sang it in 1944 and 1957, and to Greece, the country where she gave one of the most legendary performances of Norma, in 1960 at Epidaurus.
