: Prelude and Act I of Wagner's "The Mastersingers"

('Die Meistersinger')
From THE ROYAL OPERA HOUSE, COVENT GARDEN
The Church of St. Catherine, Nuremberg
Conductor, Sir THOMAS BEECHAM
THE overture ended, the curtain rises on the scene of St. Catherine's Church in Nuremberg. Eva, with her maid Magdalene, is listening to the service. Walther is gazing admiringly at her. As she leaves the church he speaks to her, and learns that she is to be the bride of the victor at tomorrow's song-contest. Walther determines to compete and win. ]n this he is helped by David Sachs' apprentice, who does his best to coach him. Presently the Mastersingers arrive to test intending candidates. Walther claims to be heard, and sings to the assembled Mastersingers, one of whom is Beckmesser, the 'marker.' Beckmesser hopes to win Eva for himself, and marks him ruthlessly. Walther is accordingly rejected, but, the meeting having broken up, Hans Sachs, who is attracted to the young knight, ponders how ho can help one who he is persuaded has in him the makings of a more than ordinarily gifted candidate for the Guild.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
