Happy Birthday to Vincenzo Bellini

Composer Vincenzo Bellini was born on this day 1801. Sadly, Bellini died only 33 years later - but, during his short time on this earth, he composed 11 operas and many other pieces of music.

To help you celebrate one of the forefathers of Bel Canto, we have Montserrat Caballe and Tatiana Troyanos singing Mira o Norma from Bellini's Norma in a live performance at La Scala in 1977.
