The story of Tannhauser is one of conflict between the forces of sacred and profane love, and the redemption of the erring Tannhauser by the devotion of the pure Elisabeth. The overture deals entirely with this theme, and leads, in the opera house, directly to the first act, which is the cavern where Venus has Tannhauser in thrall and holds her revels. The Vcnusberg music, so well known in the concert hall, takes up the whole of the first scene, in which, against a background of bacchanalian revels, Venus is passionately fighting against Tannhauser's uncontrollable wish to break away from her charms and seek the light of the sun, the company of his friends, and the purer life of his knightly environment.
This is really a piece of festival music called 'The Year 1812 ', and not an overture at all. It was written to be performed at the consecration of a church in Moscow which had just been built, some sixty years after the event, to commemorate the retreat of Napoleon's army of 1812, but the performance on that occasion was after all abandoned, probably because of the difficulties involved.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
