'Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail '
An illustrated study in the origins of Mozart's opera by Hanns Hammelmann and Michael Rose
Musical illustrations from gramophone records of * Die Entfiihrung aus dem Serail ' conducted by Sir Thomas Beecham , at.
Production by Christopher Sykes
At the age of twenty-five Mozart had written one successful opera, Idomeneo, but was still thought of in Vienna as a clavier composer and executant. He was determined to prove himself in the field in which he eventually triumphed, perhaps beyond all others of the great composers. With sharp business instinct, he searched for a suitable libretto -always a major difficulty in his operatic ventures. He found it fairly soon this time, and in 1782 after nearly a year of toil, setback, and the usual tribulations attendant on opera he gave the world Die Entfiihrung.
The story is followed mainly through
Mozart's own letters.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
