Pollione, a Roman Proconsul, has two children by Norma, a Druid priestess, in the course of a long relationship. Norma isn't as young and beautiful as once she was. A temple virgin, Adalgisa, is young and beautiful. Pollione must have her. He has importuned the young virgin to run away with him to Rome, and she has finally agreed. When Norma learns of Pollione's faithlessness, she threatens to kill the two children. Before she can do this, the Druid temple priests apprehend Pollione as he attempts to abscond with their sacred virgin, Adalgisa. The priests build a pyre to burn Pollione to death. Norma relents.

Bianca e Fernando : melodramma in due atti di Domenico Gilardoni by Vincenzo Bellini ( )
92 editions published between 1826 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 241 libraries worldwide
This opera has a typical plot of complications, disguises, and villains, but Bellini nonetheless lavished beautiful, if somewhat conventional, music on it. Fernando and Bianca, a young widow, are brother and sister, the children of Duke Carlo, who has been secretly imprisoned by Filippo. Fernando has been secretly exiled, as well, but Bianca has remained unaware of Filippo's treachery, and in fact plans to marry him. The opera opens with Fernando's return from exile, with his followers, and he sings a martial aria about his plans, embelished with intimidating high notes. He is in disguise and is pretending to bring to the usurper the news of Fernando's death. He also plans to confront his sister. Filippo gloats over the news of Fernando's death, and Bianca enters, musing on her love for Filippo and looking forward to their marriage. She thinks she recognizes Fernando, though Filippo tells her that Fernando is still in England. When she asks the disguised messenger why Fernando has never come to visit her, he whispers that it is so that he will not see her crimes. She is astounded, and the act ends in a confused ensemble.
