: GLYNDEBOURNE FESTIVAL ' The Magic Flute '

Act II of the Opera by Mozart
Scene : In and near the Temple of Sarastro

Conductor, Hans Oppenheim
Producer, CARL EBERT from
Glyndebourne Festival Opera
House
Mozart's opera The Magic Flute was written at the request of Schikanaender, who was the manager of a small theatre situated in the grounds of Prince Starhemberg's house, in a suburb of Vienna. The libretto was written by Schikanaender and Gieseke, another of Mozart's friends. All three were members of the same Masonic Lodge, and the opera has always been understood to be connected with certain Masonic rites and ceremonies.
Story of the Opera
In Act I the young prince, Tamino, goes through various adventures in trying to win the beautiful Pamina, daughter of the malignant Queen of Night. He is alternately helped by three genii and tempted by three ladies, who are servants of the Queen of Night. Papageno, a quaint, practical-minded birdcatcher, is also in search of a wife.
Tamino and Pamina are brought into the Temple of Trials to undergo such Trials as will prove them worthy of happiness. Act II opens with a solemn Temple ceremony. Sarastro, the chief priest and other priests, accept Tamino and Papageno for initiation. In the next scene Monastatos (tenor), a negro slave who has designs upon Pamina (soprano), finds her asleep. He is interrupted by her mother, the wicked Queen of Night (soprano). Later, both are frustrated by Sarastro's arrival.
The Little Bird-Woman
The priests impose a test of silence on Tamino and Papageno, which the loquacious bird-catcher finds tiresome. All the chief characters have now been introduced except Papagena, a charming little bird-woman, who is won by the bird-catcher after some trouble, including an attempt of his to hang himself.
Tamino leads Pamina safely through fire and water by the enchantment of a magic flute. At last all ends happily, the two pairs of lovers being greeted with general acclamation.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
