Thomas Hampson (baritone) Paata Burchuladze (bass)

Maria Callas was passionately committed to the future of opera. She believed in the need to support young singers, and the foundation she set up has brought forward a new generation of singers to the international stage. The latest winners of the Maria
Callas Prize came together at the Alte Oper in Frankfurt last month to give this celebration of Callas.
The concert provides a fascinating glimpse of Callas in 1962 singing the 'Habanera' from Bizet's Carmen and '0 don fatale' from Verdi's Don Carlos.
Paata Burchuladze sings 'La calunnia' from Rossini's Il barbiere di Siviglia and Prince Gremin's aria from
Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin. Anne Sofie von Otter sings
'D'amour l'ardente flamme' from Berlioz's Damnation of Faust and 'Nacqui all' affano' from Rossini's La Cenerentola. Thomas Hampson sings 'Largo al factotum' from Rossini's H barbiere di
Siviglia and Valentin's aria from Gounod's Faust. Aprile Millo sings 'Pace, pace mio dio' from Verdi's Laforza del destino and 'La mamma morta' from Giordano's Andrea Chenier.
Thomas Hampson and Anne Sofle von Otter sing the duet 'II core vi dono' from Mozart's Cosifan tutte. Finally all four soloists sing the quartet from Act IV of Verdi's Don Carlos. Introduced by Humphrey Burton Directed by HUGO KAECH for ZDF and Eurovision

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.
