: Opera on 3

The Coronation of Poppea Monteverdi 's brilliantly seductive music drama comes to English National Opera in a new production by Steven Pimlott with a new English translation by Christopher Cowell. The Roman emperor Nerone unscrupulously pursues the beautiful
Poppea, spurning his empress Octavia and condemning the statesman Seneca to death. Meanwhile, Octavia intrigues with Ottoneto kill her rival, little knowing that Ottone is also in thrall to Poppea.
Monteverdi imbues his characters with colourful and fallible humanity in this crowning masterpiece of his career.

Niels Lan Doky.
Danish pianist Niels Lan Dokywas something of a prodigy. At the age of 17, trumpeter Thad Jones took him under his wing and encouraged Niels to study at Boston's Berklee College of Music. Niels quickly moved to New York and immersed himself in the jazz scene playing alongside greats such as Joe Henderson , Clark Terry and Charlie Haden. Tonight, in performances from a recent concert at Ronnie Scott's club in London, Niels plays music from his latest recording, Asian Sessions, which explores the relationship of Vietnamese and Chinese music with jazz.

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.
