Mr. VERNON BARTLETT
(From VIENNA)
Vernon Bartlett 's new venture in giving home talks from abroad has proved an immense success, if the interest aroused by his authentic ' unofficial ' impressions of the temper of foreign capitals proves anything. Tonight he speaks from Vienna, reduced from the central glory of the Austrian Empire to the status of a province, blasted terribly by the ravages of peace, but with characteristic courage rebuilding and re-organizing, still in heart and spirit, the cultural centre of Europe.

: Act III of Strauss's Opera 'DER ROSENKAVALIER'

Scene: A private room in an inn.
Performed by the COVENT GARDEN OPERA
COMPANY
Relayed from ithe OPERA House, MANCHESTER
Characters in order of their appearance :
Conductor, JOHN BARBIROLLI
Der Rosenkavalier is undoubtedly the greatest comedy set to music since The Mastersingers. Some go further and declare it to be the greatest since Mozart's Figaro. At least this can be said of it-its plot is quite as complicated as is Beaumarchais's.
The events leading up to the third act are concerned with the amorous behaviour of that old reprobate, Baron Ochs. He has made an assignation with young Octavian, who, having had occasion earlier in the opera to disguise himself as a pretty chamber-maid, is thus known to the Baron. The scene is a private room at an inn. Octavian is there, and so are several odd people whom Octavian has hidden in various places with the idea of later scaring the Baron and making a fool of him. Ochs presently appears, hopeful and full of ardour. He has, however, anything but a gay time. He is harried by spies, pestered by a woman who comes and claims him as her husband and brings with her four children she declares to be his. The Commissioner of Police arrives, then Faninal, the father of the girl to whom Ochs is betrothed, and after them the Princess, his cousin, in the presence of whom the baffled Ochs is finally and completely humbled. He takes flight, and the Princess, resigned to the loss of Octavian's love, gives her consent to his betrothal to Sophie, now released from her promise to Baron Ochs.

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
