: AIDA

Acts I and II by THE BRITISH NATIONAL OPERA COMPANY
Conducted by JOHN BARBIROLLI
Relayed from Lewisham Hipprodrome
Act I
RATHER more than half a century ago,
Ismail Pacha , Khedive of Egypt, commissioned from the Italian composer Verdi an Opera, for his recently-opened Opera House in Cairo. Verdi produced Aida, a work at least equal to anything he had previously written, and equally successful. It is a highly-coloured Opera, with an Egyptian plot.
Ramphis, High Priest of the Egyptians, tells
Radames that it is deoreed that he shall lead the army against the Ethiopians. Radames is deeply in love with Aida, daughter of the Ethiopian king, Amonasro, but now captive at the Egyptian Court.
Amncris, the Egyptian Princess, also loves
Radames, and finding him cold, watches him and Aida.
The rest of the Act is concerned with the investiture and consecration of Radames as Commander.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
