: THE B B C MIDLAND ORCHESTRA

Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by LESLIE HEWARD
Strauss was forty-six before he turned his attention, with some diffidence at first, to the stage. He wrote one operetta, a second, and then a third ; and with the third, that scintillating masterpiece, Die Fledermaus, the Theater an der Wien, where all the Strauss operettas were mounted, took on a tradition that has for us a counterpart in the tradition attaching to the Savoy Theatre, London, the home for so long of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas.
Strauss now wrote operettas, one on the heels of another. He could not, dared not, stop, for not only Vienna, but all Europe clamoured for them. For twenty years he was the most popular figure amongst all his musical contemporaries, of whatever degree.
In 1885, eleven years after the production of Die Fledermaus, Der Zigeuner-baron was staged, and was as instantaneously successful as all the rest. It is described as an operetta, as are all the stage works of Johann Strauss , but as a matter of fact, the music is on a rather higher level than Strauss had before attempted. It is nearer the standard of opéra comique than of operetta, and of infinitely better quality than the plot deserves.

The Lesson Song from The Barber of Seville
In the celebrated lesson scene from Rossini's delightful opera, it has become traditional for the prima donna in the role of Rosina to sing an aria of her own selection rather than Rossini's original composition. This programme illustrates the variety of choice from Patti to singers of today

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.
