Overture and 'The Bartered Bride'
Act II of the Opera by Smstana
Scene: The Interior of an Inn
Cast in order of appearance :
Conductor, LAWRANCE COLLINGWOOD
Producer, CLIVE CAREY
Chorus Master, GEOFFREY CORBETT
Leader of the Orchestra,
JOSEPH SHADWICK
From Sadler's Wells Theatre
The plot of Smetana's opera The Bartered Bride, briefly told,- is this: Marenka, the pretty daughter of a peasant couple, is promised in marriage to Vashek (son of Micha, a wealthy farmer) whom she has never seen. She objects to the suit because she is already in love with Jenick, whose doubtful parentage and position make him a less desirable match. The marriage-broker Kecal intrigues on her parents' behalf to bring off the union between Marenka and the rich but stupid Vashek. As these two have never met, Marenka easily contrives to conceal her identity and put Vashek off the track. But meanwhile the marriage-broker persuades Jenick to relinquish his chance of obtaining Marenka by accepting a bribe to give her up-on condition that her bride-groom shall be Micha's son. The usual complications follow and in the last Act everything is happily cleared up.

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.
