It is impossible to say which of Weber's three great overtures is the finest as a whole : Freischiitz, Euryanthe, or Oberon. But certainly the opening of that to Oberon is the most purely magical passage Weber ever conceived. Even the enormous advances in orchestral virtuosity rnade by Berlioz, Wagner, and Rimsky-Korsakov have not dimmed its lovely colouring. When it was first heard, in 1826, it brought an entirely new note into music.
Like most operatic overtures, that to Oberon is based on material used later in the work. The opening horn theme is that of Oberon's magic horn which plays an important part in the action; the beginning of the allegro is taken from the quartet,
'Over the dark blue waters ; the famous clarinet solo comes from
Oberon's aria, 'From boyhood trained in battlefield and the violin figure that breaks in upon it from Rezia's
'Ocean! thou mighty monster'.

Tchaikovsky's ' Casse-noisette ' (Nutcracker) Suite contains some of the daintiest ballet music ever written. The whole work is, of course, much longer than the Suite, which contains only some of the best numbers, and lasts for a considerable time when presented on the stage. The story of the ballet is taken from E. T. A. Hoffmann's fantastic fairy-tale 'Nutcracker and Mouse-King ' — this Hoffmann being the Hoffmann of Offenbach's opera-and is of a type that seems very much to appeal to Russian artists and audiences.

Act 2 opens before the house of Dnnnn Elvira , n forsaken victim of Giovanni, who is now in pursuit of Zerlina, a peasant girl in Elvira's service. He exchanges cloaks with his servant Leporello and sends him to call upon Elvira while Giovanni gives his attention t) Zerlina. They are disturbed by Masetto, Zerlina's betrothed, but Giovanni beats him and gets away. In Elvira's house 3 the pretended Giovanni is soon dis- covered by Elvira, Anna, and Ottavio f to be only Leporello, and their suspicion of Giovanni's villainy is still. further confirmed.
The fourth scene is a graveyard.
To Giovanni comes Leporello to , warn his master of his danger, but the libertine is in too high spirits to consider the warning. A hollow voice, however, now comes from a statue close by. It is that of the dead Commander, exhorting Giovanni to repent. Giovanni insolently invites the statue to sup with him. In the last scene, Giovanni is seated at table attended by Leporello. Giovanni opens the door to the ghostly statue of the Commander, who, after further exhortations, seizes Don Giovanni , and, the ground opening, draws him down into the flaming abyss.

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.
