Act 2 of the Opera by Kurt Atterberg from
The Royal Opera House,
Stockholm
Conductor, Nils Grevillius
Peasants, soldiers
Scene : The Rhine Province. Time : At the beginning of the 16th century
Martin Sharp inherits the sword of his hangman father, and the first job he is given is to execute the Duke's daughter, Rosamunda, whom he loves, and who has been captured by the rebel peasants. Martin takes her to his home and hides her there. She goes to sleep and dreams of the scaffold and its horrors.
With a shriek she awakes at the moment when she imagines that her head is about to be cut off. She describes to Martin her fearful dream. He tries to calm her, but ultimately is forced to confess who he really is. He asks her pardon, and tells her that it was his love for her that made him save her. Rosamunda repulses him, but at that moment their pursuers enter Martin's house, and Martin defends himself to such good purpose that he is able to escape again with Rosamunda.
In the third Act, after more adventures, Martin is able to take Rosamunda back to her people. The Duke makes Martin a count, and all ends happily.

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.
