Sinfonia
Introduzione: Ite sul colle, o Druidi
Svanir le voci!
Meco all'altar di Venere
Me protegge, me difende
Norma viene
Sediziose voci, voci di guerra
Casta Diva
Fine al rito
Ah! bello a me ritorna
Sgombra è la sacra
Deh! proteggimi, o Dio!
Eccola! va, mi lascia, ragion non odo
Va, crudele, al Dio spietato
Vanne, e li cela entrambi
Adalgisa!
Oh! rimembranza!
Ah! si, fa core, abbracciami
Ma di', l'amato quale fra noi si noma?
Oh non tremare
Oh! di qual sei tu vittima
Oh! qual traspare orribile
Norma! de'tuoi rimproveri
Perfido!
Vanne, si: mi lascia, indegno
Scena - Introduzione
Dormono entrambi
Mi chiami, o Norma!
Deh! con te, con te li prendi
Mira, o Norma
Si, fino all'ore estreme
Non parti?
Guerrieri! a voi venirne
Ei tornerà
Squilla il bronzo del Dio!
Guerra, guerra!
Nè compi il rito, o Norma?
In mia man alfin tu sei
Già mi pasco ne'tuoi sguardi
Dammi quel ferro
Qual cor tradisti, qual cor perdesti
Norma! deh! Norma, scolpati
Deh! non volerli vittime
