(Wagner) ACT II.
Relayed from the Royal Opera House,
Covent Garden, London
Characters :
SIEGMUND and Sieglinde are partly descendants of an heroic mortal race, partly divine;
Wotan himself, lord of the gods, gave them their existence. They are predestined to bring into the world the hero, Siegfried, who shall redeem the world from the curse of the Ring and of gold.
When this drama opens, Siegmund and Sieglinde have not seen one another since their first years. Both are now grown up. Sieglinde is married to a rough, brutish husband, Hunding. Into
Hunding's hut comes Siegmund, not knowing where lie is, in sore straits and very weary after battle. He -meets Sieglinde. They do not recognize each other. bi t begin to feel the affinity of their souls. Hunding enters, and finds that Siegmund is his enemy. Ho gives him the shelter for the night duo to a stranger guest, but challenges him to fight on the morrow. Hunding and Sieglinde withdraw ; later. Sieglinde returns, and shows Siegmund the sword which an unknown guest (Wotan) thrust into the roof-tree of the hut. Siegmund draws out the sword, and the lovers flee.
ACT II.
In a wild, rocky place wo find Wotan and his daughter Briinnhilde, chief of the band of Valkyr e.
Wotan desires that Siegmund and Sivglinde shall bring forth heroes to defend Valhalla, that home of the gods. He therefore orders Brunnhilde to defend Siegmund in battle, but is compelled by his outraged wife Fricka to take back this order, and to decree that Siegmund shall dio.
Brunnhilde, . moved by compassion for Siegmund, and knowing Wotan's secret wishes, obeys Wotan's first order, not his second, and in Siegmund's duel with Hunding tries to aid the youth. But We tan intervenes just .as Siegmund is about to win, and enables Hunding to strike Siegmund dead.
Briinnhildo gathers the pieces of Siegmund's broken sword and bears off Sieglinde, seeking protection for her and for the hero whom she shall bear.

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.
