: I Pagliacci

Opera in Two Acts. Music and Text by Leoncavallo
THE Wireless CHORUS (Chon. Master, STANFORD ROBINSON)
THE WIRELESS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA, conducted by PERCY PITT
Pagliacci, or The Players, is a short, Two-Act piece, in which is shown the acting of a domestic ulrama, tragically borne out in earnest in the life of the actors.
In a PROLOGUE, Tonio (Baritone), the hunchback Clown, in his stage costume, appears through the curtains, and reminds us that actors have hearts like the rest of mankind, and have the same joys and sorrows.
Act I.
The curtain rises to show us an Italian village, where a Touring Company has just arrived, and is being greeted uproariously by THE VILLAGERS (Chorus). Soon the Head of the Company, Canio (Tenor), gains attention by persistently banging his drum and then announces the time of the coming show. He introduces to his audience NEDDA, his wife (Soprano).
Presently everyone leaves except Nedda, who is soon joined by Tonio, who tries to make love to her.
Ono of the villagers, SILVIO (Baritone), now joins her. He is in love with her, and she with him. A love scene follows, Silvio begging Nedda to run away with him.
Tonio overhears, and brings CANIO. They surprise Silvio and Nedda, but Silvio escapes. Members of the Company interpose between the enraged < lanio and his wife. It is time to prepare for the play. Left alone, Canio sings his famous song 'On with the Motley,' and disappears.
ACT II.
The players give their performance before the assembled peasants. Canio's part is that of a husband who, returning home, suspects his wife of infidelity. Canio forgets his lines in the awful reality of the situation. At last he loses control of himself, and actually stabs Nedda to death. Silvio rushes up, but he is too late, and Canio recognizing him, stabs him also. The crowd seize Canio, who sobs out 'The comedy is ended.'

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
