: Opening Night.Covent Garden Grand OperaSeason.

"THE MARRIAGE OF
FIGARO." "
(" Le Nozze di Figaro.")
Act II. of the Opera.
Relayed from the Royal Opera
House, Covent Garden.
The Act begins with the famous
Boudoir Scene. The Countess (Soprano) sings a little cavatina in praise of love. Then she and her maid, Suzanna (Soprano), discuss the Count's attentions to the maid. Cherubino (Soprano,) the Countess's love-sick Page, overhears, and a merry scene follows, at the end of which Cherubino serenades the Countess in one of Mozart's loveliest airs. Suzanna begins to dress the lad in her clothes, so that he may go to meet the amorous Count in her stead.
The Count (Baritone) returns unexpectedly, and there is a stormy scene, in which concealments, escapes and the rest contribute to the general confusion; the Act closes with a great septet in which Figaro (Bass), Basilio (Tenor), and the Music Master, Dr. Bartolo (Bass), and his Housekeeper, Marcellina, join Suzanna and the Count and Countess.

THE QUARTET. Transcribed from the Original Manuscript in the British
Museum, and Edited by Hannah Bryant.
The " Chacony " (probably composed between 1680 and 1683) was revived in 1909 by the London Chamber Concert Association. Although composed for Viols, and restricted in compass, it proved to be well adapted for performance by the modem string quartet.

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.

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.
