By no means the only opera based on Shakespeare's story of Falstaff, Nicolai's has long been one of the most popular, both here and on the Continent. He was an industrious composer, and left a good deal of original music, most of which is now almost forgotten.
The Overture is made up of tunes from the last act of the opera, in which Falstaff and the others join in a fancy-dress frolic, designed by the two ' Merry Wives ' and their friends for the fat Knight's discomfiture. A flowing tune on the violoncellos begins the Overture ; in the opera this is the moon rising over the Forest of Windsor, and the bustling merriment of the other tunes tells of the revels held there at night.

More than fifty years lie between the production of Verdi's first opera and that of his last. His latest music was an amazing advance on the earlier, but one characteristic was his through life-his great gift of typical Italian melody.
It is for melody (and, one may almost say, melody alone) that we still prize Verdi's earlier operas. Of such is The Sicilian Vespers (I Vespri Siciliani), which was produced at the Paris Opera during the Exhibition of 1855, but which for all its auspicious start, was never greatly successful' as a .whole. Its theme is the massacre of the French invaders of Sicily, who were murdered during Vespers at Eastertide, 1282.
The four scenes in the complete
Ballet represent respectively Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn.

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.
