Verismo Opera returns to the Hillside Club, 2286 Cedar near Arch, this Sunday afternoon at 2 with Belllini's great opera Norma, featuring the Druid priestess in love with a Roman proconsul--love, war and sacrificial pyres ... 

Eliza O'Malley sings the title role, with Galina Umanskaya on piano and a chorus of 16 voices. Frederick Winthrop directs. 

The following Sunday, the 21st, Norma will play--also at 2--in Vallejo's Bay Terrace Theatre. See the story (with photos) in the Benicia Herald. 

$12-$15 (707) 864-5508;
