: The London Philharmonic Concert Society, Ltd., presents 'TRISTAN UND ISOLDE'

Act 2 of the opera by Wagner from the Royal Opera House,
Covent Garden
Cast in order of appearance
The London Philharmonic Orchestra
Leader, David McCallum
Conductor, Sir Thomas Beecham Chorus Master, Robert Ainsworth
Producer, Charles Moor
In this act Isolde (soprano), King Mark's queen, is in the garden of his castle in Cornwall awaiting her lover Tristan. It is a summer night and a torch is burning outside Isolde's chamber. King Mark and his men have just left the castle for a hunt. and the faint sound of their horns can still be heard. Isolde's lady-in-waiting, Brangäne (mezzo-soprano), warns her against Melot, one of the king's retainers, whom she suspects of knowing about the secret love affair. But Isolde, believing Melot to be Tristan's most faithful friend, pays no heed to the warning and asks Brangäne to extinguish the torch which is the signal for Tristan to come.
While Brangane goes up to the tower to keep watch, Tristan (tenor) appears. During the ensuing love-scene Brangane's warning calls that dawn is near are heard twice from the distant tower. But the two lovers, wrapped up in their passion, take no notice. The catastrophe is brought about by the sudden return of King Mark (bass) to whom Melot (tenor) had betrayed Isolde's secret rendezvous. In a fight with Melot, Tristan is gravely wounded.

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.
