: Gramophone Records Act I of Verdi's Opera ' Rigoletto '

Members of La Scala, Milan, Orchestra and Chorus
Conductor, CARLO SABAJNO
In Act 1, Rigoletto, the humpbacked, sardonic jester, aids and abets his unscrupulous master, the Duke of Mantua, in amatory escapades, one of which has involved Count Monterone's daughter. Subsequently, the curse of Monterone fills the superstitious jester with fears for the safety of his own child, Gilda, hitherto well guarded from the Duke's attentions. Three of Rigoletto's many enemies, Count Ceprano, Marullo, and Borso, wreak vengeance. Blindfold, under the impression that he is helping to abduct the Countess Ceprano, Rigoletto participates in the kidnapping of his own beloved daughter.

: Act I of Verdi's Opera 'La Traviata'

Relayed from SADLER'S WELLS Cast in order of appearance :
Conductor, WARWICK BRAITHWAITE
Producer, JOHN B. GORDON
Violetta is welcoming a party. Alfred is among the guests. He is asked to sing, and gives the spirited drinking song, ' Where beauty and mirth.' He is joined by the chorus and echoed by Violetta. The strains of a waltz are heard from an adjoining room. The guests are about to proceed thither when Violetta is seized with sudden illness and obliged to rest. At her request the guests leave her to recover, but Alfred lingers and declares his love. Violetta. at first refuses to take him seriously. Soon, however, she realises his deep earnestness. Left alone, she falls to musing on this strange, wondrous emotion that has entered her life, and then sings the famous ' Ah, fors e lui (' (Ah, was it him my heart foretold ').

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.
