: Verdi's A Masked Ball

(Un ballo in maschera)
The second in BBC2's season of Verdi operas. Tonight starring conducted by Claudio Abbado
When the King of Sweden met his death at the hands of conspirators during a masked ball in 1792, the motive for the crime was certainly not any affair between the king and his secretary's wife.
However EUGÈNE SCRIBE'S rewriting of history inspired one of Verdi's most radiant love duets. With this production Claudio Abbado launches his musical directorship of the Vienna State Opera. Act I
Scene 1: The royal palace in Stockholm
Scene 2: Ulrica's dwelling
8.40 8.45 * Interval with Julian Budden , a leading authority on the works of Verdi, who also introduces the opera.
(Billing continues on page 33)
A simultaneous broadcast with Radio 3. Viewers with stereo Radio 3 may wish to turn off TV sound and position their speakers on either side of the screen, but a few feet away.
Stereo headphones provide a suitable alternative.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
