: Verdi's Nabucco

High Priest of the Israelites thePaata Burchuladze
and the Chorus and Orchestra of La Scala, Milan conducted by Riccardo Muti
Over the next weeks Verdi operas will be featured by BBC2 and Radio 3 in important, new productions which reveal Verdi's developing mastery as the supreme musical dramatist of the 19th century.
Nabucco was Verdi's first success. The stirring personal drama has echoes of Aida
(the soprano and the mezzo are both in love with the tenor), but Milanese operagoers in the 1840s were also moved by the patriotic fervour of 'Va, pensiero', the deeply touching chorus sung by the Israelites in their Babylonian captivity. Act I
The Temple in Jerusalem Act II
Scene 1: Palace at Babylon
Scene 2: A hall in the palace
Interval with Julian Budden , one of the world's leading
Verdi authorities, who also introduces the opera.
Scene 1: The Hanging Gardens Scene 2: On the banks of the Euphrates Act IV
Scene 1: A room in the palace Scene 2: The Hanging Gardens Subtitles by GILLIAN WIDDICOMBE La Scala production by ROBERTO DE SIMONE
Television producer ROBIN SCOTT Directed for television by BRIAN LARGE

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.
