Hi Stephen,
I would recommend Cossotto's performance as Adalgisa with Leyla Gencer as
Norma from La Fenice - if you can locate it.
It was originally released by the La Fenice organization themselves (and
beautifully packaged).

The closest I've been able to find is a comparable cast and recording from
Naples in 1965, available from Presto Classical:
