: Bayreuth after Wieland Wagner

by GEOFFREY SKELTON
Wieland Wagner , the composer's grandson, was the dominant figure at the Bayreuth Festival from 1951 until his death three years ago. His revolulicinary spirit is still very much in evidence, and this year's new production of The Flying Dutchman suggests that the forward-looking policy will continue.

: Der fliegende Hollander

The Flying Dutchman A romantic opera
Words and music by WAGNER (sung in German in the original, continuous version) Recording from the Bayreuth Festival 1969 Cast in order of singing
Daland's seamen, the Dutchman's phantom crew. maidens
BAYREUTH FESTIVAL CHORUS chorus-master WILHELM PITZ BAYREUTH FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA conducted by SILVIO VARVISO Produced by AUGUST EVERDING
Four years ago Donald Mc-Intyre sang his first Dutchman at Sadler's Wells Theatre in English. This year he has returned to the part, but on the foremost Wagnerian stage in the world. For some time now this 34-year-old New Zealander has been stepping effortlessly into the seven-league boots of the leading Wagner and Strauss Heldenbariton roles. In 1967 he reached Bayreuth asTehamund i Lohengrin): the next year it was Telramund and Klingsor iParsifaV); and now it is the storm-tossed hero condemned to sail forever round the earth until set free bv a woman's love.
The story is set in the 18th century, on the coast of Norway
Act 1 A rocky sea-shore
9.35* Act 2 A room in Daland's house
10.30* Act 3 A creek near Daland's house
(Recording made available by courtesy of Bavarian Radio. Another Bayreuth recording, Tristan und Isolde: 9 November, Music Programme)

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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
