: Glyndebourne Festival ' LE NOZZE DI FIGARO'

Act 2 of the opera by Mozart from the Glyndebourne Festival
Opera House
The action takes place in the neighbourhood of Seville
Scene, The Countess's bedroom
Cast in order of appearance
The Glyndebourne Festival Chorus
The Glyndebourne Festival Orchestra
Conductor, Fritz Busch
Producer, Carl Ebert
In this act Figaro comes to the Countess's room to tell her of a plan by which he hopes to gain the consent of the Count to his wedding. He has sent an anonymous note to the Count saying that his wife intends to meet a gentleman in the garden. Susanna is to promise to meet the Count there, but Cherubino, dressed in Susanna's clothes, will keep the appointment instead. The Countess will catch her husband in the wrong, and so humble him.
In the midst of dressing up
Cherubino, the Count knocks at the door. After some small complications Cherubino jumps out of a window and is seen by the gardener; but Figaro takes the blame on himself, and the Count's suspicions are allayed.
Now comes a diversion. Marcellina comes to complain that Figaro has broken a promise to marry her. The Count is glad, for he has another excuse to forbid his valet to wed Susanna, at any rate, until the charge is looked into. This incident, the climax and end of the act, is most effectively worked up in Mozart s happiest style.

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.
