Act 2 of MOZART'S opera from this year's
Aix-en-Provence Festival
Orchestre de Paris
Conducted by Georges Semkow
Scenery and costumes, A. M. Cassandre
Production, JEAN MEYER
Introduced by ANTONY HOPKINS sung in Italian with English sub-titles by JULIAN BUDDEN
Recording made available by courtesy of the French Television Service
In Act 1, Don Giovanni , licentious young Spanish nobleman, with over 2,000 conquests to his credit, attempted to seduce Donna Anna. She raised the alarm, and the Don, in making his escape, killed her father, the Commendatore. Don Giovanni went blithely on to his next affair with Zerlina, a peasant girl about to be married to Masetto. Donna Elvira, a former conquest and at heart still in love with Don Giovanni , joined Donna Anna and her lover, Don Ottavio , at a ball in Don Giovanni's palace where tlTey all planned to bring him to justice. But he escaped them again.
At the beginning of Act 2, he and his servant Leporello are having an argument. Leporello, though slightly envious of his master's amorous adventures, is threatening to leave unless he mends his ways; the chink of a coin, however, soon persuades him to remain. Don Giovanni borrows Leporello's cloak hoping this disguise will give him a better chance of success with his next 'victim,' Donna Elvira 's maid. He escapes punishment yet again and eventually meets Leporello in a cemetery. They see the statue of the Commendatore and Don Giovanni jokingly invites it to supper; to Leporello's horror it agrees-with fatal results for the gay but ruthless Don Giovanni.

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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
