Overture,
' Susanna's Secret '
Wolf-Ferrari
A BRILLIANT member of the modern
Italian school, Wolf-Ferrari has shown himself to be at homo both in serious and in lighter music. In this opera, as the Overture makes clear, he has given us music of exactly that delicate and whimsical order which the slight little tale demands. The story centres round the discovery by Suzanna's husband of the trace of tobacco smoke in her boudoir, and the jealous suspicions which that aroused in an ago before smoking by women was at all usual. Only at the end does Suzanna confess that she herself smoked the offending cigarette.
ELSIE GRIFFIN and Orchestra
THE best-known number from Gounod's opera on the Shakespeare story, this is sung by Juliet at the ball in her father's house in the first Act. If one remembers that Juliet was supposed to be only fourteen and that this was her first appearance at a great ball, the air may seem to be rather brilliant and full of assurance, but opera conventions are not wont to heed such considerations, and the air has always been a favourite with sopranos. It is eloquent of youthful pleasure in dancing and brilliant surroundings, and expresses the wish that all life might bo fu!l of such gaiety.

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.
