: Act II of Bizet's Opera ' Carmen'

Relayed from Sadler's Wells Theatre
Scene : The Inn of Lilas Pastia
Cast in order of appearance
The inn is on the outskirt of Seville a haunt of the smugglers to whose band
Carmen belongs. It is evening, and revelry is the mood of all there-soldiers, gypsies and townsfolk Soon they are joined by Escamillo, bull fighter and idol of Seville; they teas him, and in response he sings his
Toreador song. He and Carmen are obviously fascinated by one another
The inn is closed for the night, but Carmen still expects Jose, the handsome soldier whom she had beguiled into freeing her a month before; she was under arrest in his charge, for having stabbed a fellow cigarette maker. His voice is heard, and she admits him, dancing for him as she had promised she would do if he came to seek her there.
Trumpet-tones, blending with the music of her dance, sound his recall to barracks, and Carmen taunts him with his devotion to duty rather than to her. His reply is the Flower Song. Taking from his breast the bloom which once she threw him, he tells her how he languished in prison for her sake—his punishment for letting her escape-dreaming always of her witchery.
A knocking on the gate breaks in on the end of his song, and his officer enters ; he, too, is enslaved by Carmen s charm. He orders Jose off, and in a moment of mad jealousy the soldier draws his sword ; the clash of weapons brings the smugglers in a rush, to disarm and make captives of them both, officer and trooper.

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.

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.
