Overture to ' Susanna's Secret'
Wolf-Ferrari
Selection from ' Hansel and Gretel'
Humperdinck
THE scent of cigarette smoke in his wife's boudoir aroused the jealousy of Susanna's husband, until Susanna confessed that the smoker was none other than herself. Such is the plot of the one-act Opera (written in 1909, before the days of women's emancipation as smokers) to which Wolf-Ferrari attached this wholly appropriate gay-spirited Overture.
TTUMPERDINCK, though ho was fairly well
-LL known as a composer before he brought out Hansel and Gretel (in 1893), tasted the rich fruit of perfect success with that work—success to which he never again quite attained. Wo acclaim him all the more heartily because, though he was closely associated with Wagnerian opera (he was a right-hand man to Wagner in the preparation of Parsifal), he never merely copied the master, yet contrived to learn a great deal from him, so that Hänsel awl Gretel gained tremendously by Humperdinck's absorption of the spirit of Wagnerian methods. In any selection from the Opera we shall almost certainly hear some of those leading tunes that occur in tho Overture-the Children's Prayer that, we remember, comes at the opening of it, on the Horns, tho Witch's Magic, the Song of tho Sand-man, and other tunes that we hum as wo come away from a performance of the work.

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.
