: Wexford Festival Opera 1982: Griselidis

Opera in a prologue and three acts by Massenet (1901) Libretto by Armand Sylvestre and Eugene Morand (sung In French)
A direct relay from the Theatre Royal, Wexford
The heroine of Massenet's 15th opera came from Boccaccio's Decameron, though her story was also told In Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. The setting is medieval Provence, where the lovely shepherdess Griselidis becomes wife of the Marquis. He goes away to the Crusades, and the Devil - more comical than diabolical, and smarting from his own shrewish wife - comes to tempt her while her husband is absent. He conjures up a handsome suitor, abducts her son, but fails to shake her fidelity.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
