Andre Messager , who died five years ago at the good old age of seventy-six, was for long a familiar figure in th<j London musical world, apart from the successful productions here of some of his best light operas. We remember his Little Michus and Veronique ; and his ballet The Two Pigeons is often heard as orchestral music. But besides composing, he did distinguished work as conductor, too, not only in Paris, but in London. For some six years he was Artistic Director at Covent Garden Opera House, conducting many of the important operas.
The romantic opera Monsieur Beau caire, adapted by Frederick Lohsdale from Booth Tarkington's popular novel of the same name, was first put on in 1919 at Prince's Theatre with Maggie Teyte , fresh from Continental triumphs in opera and opera comique, in the part of Lady Mary Carlisle. It had a run of 221 performances as an opera. But Monsieur Beaucaire had already had existence as a play without music, and from 1902 to 1907, with Lewis Waller in the name part, had scarcely been off the stage.
The play was revived in 1924, in 1928, and in 1932. It can now be classed almost as a repertory play.

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.
