DONIZETTI was writing operas from 1818 to 1844, and so bridged the period between Rossini and Verdi. Not all his operas were successful; he wrote sixty-three of them and could scarcely have expected more than a few of them to hit the public taste. Belisario is not one of the popular ones, and has probably never been heard on the London stage. It was written in 1836-doubtless in a month or less, as was Donizetti's custom-and begins with Lucia di Lammermoor, the short period when he basked in European fame.
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.
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.
