The operatic intermezzo probably owes its existence to the need for something to interest an audience while scenes are changed, but orchestras and conductors quickly seized on it as an opportunity to take their share of the limelight. It was often a reprise of a melody from an earlier act, but gradually composers came to use it to set the atmosphere of the following scene. Whatever the cause, it is usually a favourite moment in the opera, and tonight's programme includes several of the most loved ones from French and Italian operas.
