: Opera on 3

Live from the Met: Parsifal
Placido Domingo and John Tomlinson star in Richard Wagner 's final music drama, conducted by the artistic director of the New York Metropolitan Opera,
James Levine. The brotherhood of knights who guard the Holy Grail -the chalice used at the Last Supper- are facing extinction. Their King Amfortas, seduced by a temptress, has lost their other sacred relic -the spearthat pierced Christ's side -to the sorcerer Klingsor. Only a " pure fool, made wise through pity" can bring salvation. Then a passer-by shoots one of the knights' sacred swans. He's a goofy young man called Parsifal but old
Gurnemanz has a hunch about him. During the interval Rodney Milnes continues his series Opera Snaps- a sideways glance at each of this season's Met operas.
New York Metropolitan Opera Chorus and Orchestra, conductor James Levine Act
6.45 Interval: Wagner and the Philosophers At key points in his creative career, Wagner fell under the spell first of Nietzsche, then of Schopenhauer. What were the ideas that attracted him? And how did they affect his subsequent music?

8.35 Interval: A Knight of Peace

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.
