An extended edition presenting
Berlioz's huge operatic masterpiece The Trojans complete in a recording from La Scala, Milan, conducted by celebrated Berlioz interpreter Colin Davis. In part one, The Fall of Troy,
Jane Henschel leads the cast as the prophet of doom, Cassandra. The Trojans, rejoicing in their enemies' gift of the wooden horse, ridicule
Cassandra's gloomy warnings of the city's destruction. But the warnings prove all too accurate, and Cassandra and the Trojan women kill themselves. As she had also prophesied, however, the heroic prince Aeneas escapes with his army to found a new Troy in Italy. Part two, The Trojans at Carthage, finds Aeneas dallying en route with Dido, queen of Carthage. But can Aeneas deny his destiny? Sung in French.

Robert Southey was expelled from Westminster School for founding a magazine called The Flagellant but went on to become one of the most prolific writers of his day. Though
Roderick, the Last of the Goths and The Curse of Kehama may be little read now, Southey's reputation has been perhaps unfairly eclipsed by more famous Romantic poets. Hermione Lee considers the claims of a new biography which attempts to restore his position in history. The programme also includes first-night news of Richard Eyre 's new production of King Lear.
