: Opera on 3: Live from the Met: Gotterdammerung

Radio 3's season of live broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera House in New York ends with the final part of Wagner's Ring cycle. The cursed ring is fought over until
Siegfried becomes its latest victim. His lover Briinnhilde takes the ring and leaps on to Siegfried's funeral pyre. Now cleansed by fire, the ring is reclaimed by the Rhinemaidens, while Valhalla, the home of the Gods, goes up inflames. Presented by Stephanie Hughes.
New York Metropolitan Opera Chorus and Orchestra, conductor James Levine

Act 1

Opera on 3 5.00pm R3

When it comes to great Brunnhildes, size isn't everything. Nor is having a voice that can shake the foundations of Valhalla or cut through Wagner's orchestra like ... well, like Jane Eaglen can. Eaglen brings to the part an understanding of when to let rip (and what a thrilling sound that is!) and when to use her voice as a colour in the overall orchestral mix. Apart from her big moment in Act 3, when Brunnhilde seizes the magic ring and rides her horse into Siegfried's funeral pyre, Gotterddmmerung also contains the wonderful Siegfried's Rhine Journey and Funeral Music. And to end it all the Rhine bursts its banks and Valhalla goes up in smoke. They don't write them like that any more! (Laurence Joyce)

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
