Conductor, ARTHUR CATTERALL
ORIGINALLY in one act, afterwards extended to two, Beatrice and Benedict was commissioned for the Baden opera house, and produced there in August, 1862. Berlioz wrote both text and music, adapting parts of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing; writing about it in the previous year, while he was at work on it, ho said: 'I promise there shall not be much ado in the way of noise in it.' He went to Baden to superintend the final rehearsals and direct the first performances, and was delighted by his reception and by the lavish way in which his work was put on ; the fees paid him for it, too, seemed to him generous, though many an artist at the present day earns more for a single appearance. At the first performance, so he has recorded himself, he was suffering from such neuralgia as to have no interest in anything, and yet conducted better than usual. The opera was applauded from end to end, and he was recalled more times than he could count; the performers were as enthusiastic as the audience. In the following April, translated into German (for the cosmopolitan public of Baden it had been sung in the original French), it was given at Weimar, Berlioz himself again conducting the first two performances, and there, too, it scored a triumphant success. But though it was warmly received in other cities, too, it has not contrived to keep its hold on the public affection, despite the tenderness and charm of its melodious score.' ',To my mind, one of the liveliest and most original things I have ever done,' he said himself, and when chances are offered of hearing parts of it, most listeners agree with him.

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.
