: Performance on 3

Petroc Trelawney introduces a new Opera North production of Handel's great operatic masterpiece Radamisto live from the Grand Theatre, Leeds. The success of this work in April 1720 established Handel as the leading composer of Italian opera seria and London as the opera capital of Europe - at least for a few years. Handel's heroic drama of infidelity, jealousy, political intrigue and war is presented in a new English translation by Tim Kopkins.
Radamisto is a tense drama of love in a time of war, in which desire drives a man to besiege a city in orderto capture the woman he loves, and a woman remains faithful to her husband even in the face of death.
Handel's music is byturns achingly beautiful and dazzlingly brilliant. The elegant melodies both convey and contain the powerful emotions of the story.
Musical setting by Tim Hopkins and Harry Bicket after an edition by Terence Best.
English Northern Philharmonia, conductor Harry Bicket Parti

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.
