Relayed from
The White Rock Pavilion, Hastings
The Countess in Mozart's opera Figaro has grave doubts of her husband's fidelity, and schemes with her maid, Suzanna, to find him out by a little plot of disguises and changed costumes. In the recitative before this aria she gives vent to her doubts of the propriety of such a scheme, and then in the aria laments the happy days when she was sure that his devotion was wholly her own.
There are dances in each of the three acts of The Bartered Bride. The Dance of the Comedians is taken from the last act, that in which the circus troupe appears. The tunes employed are Bohemian in origin or in construction, and reflect the true surroundings of the country the opera is about. Smetana was above all a nationalist composer, a keen student of Czech and Bohemian
.folk-song, and The Bartered Bride is thoroughly native in tone and idiom. The music of the dances is authentic, and belongs essentially to the Bohemia of the nineteenth century.


Conductor: Julius Harrison
Soprano: Isobel Baillie

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.
