On February 12, 2020, María José Siri will sing the title role in Norma at the Teatro San Carlo Naples, in a production by Lorenzo Amato and under the musical direction of Maestro Francesco Ivan Ciampa, the first of a series of four performances running through February 20, 2020. She will share the stage with Annalisa Stroppa as Adalgisa, Fabio Sartori as Pollione and Fabrizio Beggi as Oroveso.
