Directed by JOHN BRIDGE
Modern association with this two-centuries-old ballad opera is centred in the production and revivals at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, under the famous and splendid direction of the late Sir Nigel Playfair. On its first production in 1920, as revised by Playfair and Frederic Austin , who edited and reconstructed the music, it ran for 1463 performances, and since then it has been revived at least half-a-dozen times.
Many singers of note have appeared in it, some, indeed, having made their reputation in one rôle or another-not only in the last ten years, but in any revival over the last two hundred.

Part I
The overture to Coriolan, which opens tonight's Beethoven programme has not, as one would at first imagine, anything to do with Shakespeare's play. The author of the drama for which Beethoven wrote the overture was Heinrich Collin ,"a contemporary dramatist. It is called an overture, but in point of fact, it is far more of a symphonic poem, held to be the first of ics kind. There is no doubt that it was the forerunner of the famous set of symphonic poems written by Liszt.
Beethoven has drawn upon Plutarch's portrait of Coriolanus, and there was much in the character of this Roman to appeal to a man like Beethoven, whose forthright, independent, strong-willed nature was somewhat similar. In the music Beethoven has aimed at two things, to render musically the character of his hero, and to picture the incident of the famous meeting between Coriolanus, his mother, and his wife.

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.
