: 'The Mastersingers'

ACT I
Relayed from the Royal Opera House,
Covent Garden
ACT I
WE are in St. Catherine's Church in Nuremberg.
Walter von Stolzing (Tenor) is watching Eva
(Soprano), daughter of the goldsmith Pogner, with whom he is in love. As the service ends, Eva contrives to have a few words with Walter, sending back her companion Magdalena (Contralto) to look for a handkerchief, left in the pew. Walter wants to know if Eva is betrothed. Magdalena, taking her mistress away, tells him that she is not, but that tomorrow a contest of song will decide who will be her husband, for the prize is to be her hand. They go, and David (Tenor), apprentice to Hans Sachs , the cobbler, comes to superintend the preparation of the church for one of the song contests in which apprentices try their skill.
The apprentices come in, and begin to make the church ready. David tells Walter of the Mastersingers' complicated rules of song construction. Walter, in spite of these pitfalls. determines to try for a Mastership in the Guild,
Now Pogner (Bass) and Beckmesser (Baritone) enter. Beckmesser wants to win Eva. Walter enters, and the Mastersingers ; the roll is called, and Pogner addresses his fellows, telling them that to dignify their great art of song he will give his greatest gift-his daughter-to him who can win her by a song. Kothner (Bass) reads the rules for song-making. Beckmesser now takes his place in a cabinet as ' marker,' to keep count of any infractions of the rules made by the singer, and Walter beginsa lovely Spring song; but he breaks all manner of rules, so that at the end the jealous Beckmesser shows a slateful of bad marks, and poor Walter is ignominiously dismissed. The masters indignantly retire, and Sachs goes after them, pondering on the lovely new song he has heard.

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.
