* II Trovatore '
Joan Hammond (soprano)

Parry Jones (tenor)
Frederick Sharp (baritone)
BBC Theatre Chorus
BBC Theatre Orchestra
Conductor, Walter Goehr
Story told by Stephen Williams
(Frederick Sharp broadcasts by permission of the Governors of Sadler's Wells)
Everyone will tell you that the plot of // Trovatore is incomprehensible. Don't believe it. The plot is perfectly comprehensible, but, like most things worth understanding, it demands a little effort to understand. Once you have made that effort you will never forget it. The chief splendour of 11 Trovatore, however, is its prodigality of perfectly magnificent tunes. Never was Verdi more bounteous of his apparently inexhaustible wealth of melody. 11 Trovatore is one of the three highest peaks of Verdi's middle period as a composer, the other two being Rigaletto and La Traviata. It is based on Gutierrez's romantic drama of fifteenth-century Spain, El Trcvador , and tells of the love of two brothers, separated since. infancy, for the same woman. It is high tragedy of the most violently contrasted lights and shadows, and Verdi has matched it with fiery, passionate music that strikes out sparks at every bar.-Stephten Williams

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.
