Relayed from The Royal Opera House,
Covent Garden
La Cenerentola (' Cinderella '), one of Rossini's finest comic operas, was first produced at Rome, in January, 1817, just eleven months after the still more celebrated Barber. London heard it-in a badly mutilated version-three years later, but for many years it was strangely neglected in this country. Georgina Burns revived it successfully in 1891 and toured the provinces with it. After that-silence. And a silence which, lasted for forty-three years. Then last June it was given with brilliant success at Covent Garden and at one stroke regained its rightful place in the Italian repertoire. The Cinderella of last year's revival was Conchita Supervia (for La Cenerentola is one (,f the few operas that have a contralto heroine), and she will sing the part again this year.
There is an article on La Cenerentola on page 16.

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
