Act I of Richard Strauss 's Opera
Scene : The Princess's Bedroom

Conductor, FRITZ REINER from the Royal Opera House
Covent Garden
Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier, the finest opera of its kind since Die Meistersinger, is better described as a comedy set to music than as comic opera. The scene is laid in Vienna in the days of Maria Theresa , somewhere about the middle of the eighteenth century.
At the beginning of the first act, the young Count Octavian is paying his devotions to the Princess, wife of a ! Field-Marshal who is away at the wars. The lady is touched by the boy's I devotion, but feels that she is too old to keep his affection, and has made up her mind that she must give him up. They are interrupted by the arrival of the Baron Ochs, and Octavian hides, and disguises himself as a girl. When he emerges, the Baron is greatly taken with him, and there is much by-play between them, when the Princess is not looking. The object of the Baron's visit was to ask his kinswoman, the Princess, to choose for him a cavalier to carry his rose to the lady of his heart, and when she has sent him away, the Princess tells Octavian that he must undertake the task. The idea pleases him so much that in leaving, he forgets to take a tender farewell of the lady, to her evident chagrin.

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.
