: Rigoletto - Live from the Royal Opera House

In the centenary year of Giuseppe Verdi 's death,
James Naughtie introduces from Covent Garden a live performance of Rigoletto, the ROH debut of the young Scottish director David McVicar who is working alongside long-time Verdi conductor Edward Downes. Also broadcast on Radio 3.
One of Verdi's masterpieces, Rigoletto tells the dark and powerful story of revenge, seduction and tragedy, and is filled with some of his most celebrated music, from Gilda's rapturous vision of love, Caro nome, to the chauvinistic La donna e mobile. At the centre of the story is Rigoletto himself, the hunchbacked court jester at the court of the Duke of Mantua. Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
During the interval, Charles Hazlewood explores the success of Verdi's work, visiting Venice where Rigoletto was premiered in 1851, while David McVicar discusses his interpretation of Rigoletto and its relevance to society today.

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.
