Act I
Gaul, 50 B.C.E. In a forest at night, the priest Oroveso leads the druids in a prayer for revenge against the conquering Romans. After they have left, the Roman proconsul Pollione admits to his friend Flavio that he no longer loves the high priestess Norma, Oroveso’s daughter, with whom he has two children. He has fallen in love with a young novice priestess Adalgisa, who returns his love. Flavio warns him against Norma’s anger. The druids assemble, and Norma prays to the moon goddess for peace. She tells her people that as soon as the moment for their uprising against the conquerors arrives, she herself will lead the revolt. At the same time, she realizes that she could never harm Pollione. When the grove is deserted, Adalgisa appears and asks for strength to resist Pollione. He finds her crying and urges her to flee with him to Rome. She agrees to renounce her vows.

In her dwelling, Norma tells her confidante Clotilde that Pollione has been called back to Rome. She is afraid that he will desert her and their children. Adalgisa confesses to Norma that she has a lover. Recalling the beginning of her own love affair, Norma decides to release Adalgisa from her vows and asks for the name of her lover. As Pollione appears, Adalgisa answers truthfully. Norma’s kindness turns to fury. She tells Adalgisa about her own betrayal by the Roman soldier. Pollione confesses his love for Adalgisa and asks her again to come away with him, but she refuses and declares she would rather die than steal him from Norma.

 

第一幕
高盧,西元前50年。在夜晚的森林中,主教奧洛維索帶領僧侶們祈禱能夠打退侵略他們的羅馬人。在他們離開之後,羅馬地方官波霖內向他的朋友伏拉維歐承認他不再愛奧洛維索的女兒,也就是跟他育有兩個孩子的女祭司長諾爾瑪。他現在跟年輕的女祭司阿達爾吉莎相愛。伏拉維歐警告他小心諾爾瑪的憤怒。僧侶聚集,諾爾瑪向月亮女神祈求和平。她告訴人民,只要揭竿起義的時機到來,她會親自領軍反攻。在此同時,她知道自己絕對不會傷害波霖內。阿達爾吉莎從樹叢中現身,祈求神明能夠賜給她抗拒波霖內的勇氣。他聽到她的哭聲,慫恿她跟他逃回羅馬。她同意拋棄她對高盧的誓言。

諾爾瑪在自己的住所,跟她的閨中密友克洛蒂爾德說羅馬已經將波霖內召回。她害怕他會拋棄自己和兩人的孩子。阿達爾吉莎跟諾爾瑪坦承自己有了愛人。諾爾瑪回想起自己的苦戀,決定不拿誓言束縛阿達爾吉莎,並且問了她的愛人是誰。就在波霖內出現之時,阿達爾吉莎如實回答。諾爾瑪的親切頓時轉為暴怒。她告訴阿達爾吉莎,自己被這個羅馬士兵所背叛。波霖內坦承他對阿達爾吉莎的愛,要求她跟他走,她不但拒絕,還說她寧可死,也不願奪諾爾瑪所愛。

Act II
At home, Norma, dagger in hand, tries to bring herself to murder her children in their sleep to protect them from living disgracefully without a father. She changes her mind and summons Adalgisa, advising her to marry Pollione and take the children to Rome. Adalgisa refuses: She will go to Pollione, but only to persuade him to return to Norma. Overcome by emotion, Norma embraces her, and the women reaffirm their friendship. The druids assemble in the forest to hear Oroveso’s announcement that a new commander will replace Pollione. Oroveso rages against the Roman oppression, but tells the druids that they must be patient to ensure the success of the eventual revolt.

Norma is stunned to hear from Clotilde that Adalgisa’s pleas have not persuaded Pollione to return to her, and in a rage she urges her people to attack the conquerors. Oroveso demands a sacrificial victim. Just then, Pollione is brought in, having profaned the druids’ sanctuary. Alone with him, Norma promises him his freedom if he will give up Adalgisa for her. When he refuses, Norma threatens to kill him and their children and to punish Adalgisa. She calls in the druids and tells them that a guilty priestess must die, then confesses that she is referring to herself. Moved by her nobility, Pollione asks to share her fate. Norma begs Oroveso to watch over her children, then leads her lover to the pyre.

 

第二幕
諾爾瑪在家中,手上握著匕首,想要狠下心殺掉熟睡中的孩子,免得他們背負父親不詳的污名而活。但她改變了主意,叫來阿達爾吉莎,勸她嫁給波霖內,並幫她把孩子帶去羅馬。阿達爾吉莎拒絕了,她說自己會去找波霖內,但只是為了說服他回到諾爾瑪身邊。諾爾瑪感動不已,抱住阿達爾吉莎,兩個女人重申她們的友誼。

僧侶們在森林中集合,聽奧洛維索宣佈將有新的指揮官來取代波霖內。奧洛維索痛斥羅馬的壓迫,但跟僧侶們說,大家必須耐心等待適當時機,反攻才能成功。

諾爾瑪聽克洛蒂爾德說波霖內不肯聽阿達爾吉莎的話回到自己身邊之後又驚又氣,在盛怒驅使下,她告訴人民,攻擊侵略者的時機到了。奧洛維索要求選出一人獻祭。就在此時,波霖內因褻瀆僧侶的聖殿被人拖了進來。諾爾瑪在兩人獨處之際承諾他說,如果他放棄阿達爾吉莎,回到自己身邊,就會放他自由。他拒絕之後,諾爾瑪威脅說要殺了他跟他們的孩子,還要處罰阿達爾吉莎。她把僧侶們召入,告訴他們有一名女祭司有罪,必須處死,接著坦承她說的就是自己。波霖內為她高貴的人格所感動,要求與她共同赴死。諾爾瑪拜託奧洛維索照顧孩子,然後與愛人攜手走入獻祭的熊熊烈火之中。
