A Word About Timings

All timings are listed in both Greenwich Mean Time and Eastern Standard Time. North America and Europe are now on Standard Time. For those of you who live in other time zones, you will need to make a calculation to derive the time of an event where you live. In North America subtract five (5) hours (from GMT) for the Eastern Time Zone, six (6) hours for the Central Time Zone, and seven (7) hours for the Mountain Time Zone. Subtract eight (8) hours for the Pacific Time Zone and nine (9) hours for Alaska, and ten (10) hours for Hawaii. UK, Ireland and Portugal are matched to GMT. In most of the rest of Europe add one (1) hour (some Eastern European countries are two (2) hours ahead of GMT). In the Southern Hemisphere, Australia and New Zealand are on Daylight Time (Australia is 11 hours ahead of GMT; New Zealand is 13 hours ahead of GMT).

For those in the United States, it is useful to keep in mind that broadcasts in the evening hours often appear in the NEXT day's listings because they occur in the small hours in GMT time, which is our primary reference in the following listings.

For more information on time zone calculations, double click the time display on the lower right of your screen (if you are using a PC) to display the Time Zone tab, then click on the drop-down menu for a full list of time zones and their relationships to Greenwich Mean Time. You may also let the TIME CONVERTER do the calculations for you.

SPECIAL PROGRAM: Composer of the Week
Jean-Philippe Rameau (1683 - 1764) [Episode 4 of 5]

A Night at the Opera

Donald Macleod’s survey of Jean-Philippe Rameau’s stage works comes to the dance and singing extravaganza, Les fetes d’Hebe.

At his death in 1764, Rameau, by then an octogenarian, had more than 30 stage works to his credit. It’s a remarkable achievement when you consider he produced his first opera at the age of 50. Up to that point, although details about his life are surprisingly patchy, he appears to have held a succession of posts in the provinces, as an organist, teacher and theoretician, seemingly without even a whiff of greasepaint. Then, at an age when one might assume his chosen path was settled, Rameau upped sticks, came back to Paris and conquered the stage with breathtaking speed.
Across the week Donald Macleod focusses on those heady, initial years in the French capital, building a picture of what made Rameau into a highly successful, if controversial, theatrical composer.

When Rameau was writing for the stage, the abilities of the colourful company of singers, dancers and musicians employed by the Paris Opera shaped the music he provided.

In memoriam - Theo Adam

Auch als Interpret von Musik des späteren 20. Jahrhunderts hat Theo Adam Geschichte geschrieben; er war Baron Scarpia und Don Giovanni, sang in den Passionen und Oratorien von Bach und Mendelssohn. Am engsten verknüpft bleibt der Name des am 10. Jänner 92-jährig verstorbenen sächsischen Bassbaritons aber mit der Musik von Richard Wagner und, etwas abgestuft, Richard Strauss. Zur klingenden Erinnerung an den großen Theo Adam: "Parsifal", "Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg", "Der fliegende Holländer" und "Die Walküre" von Wagner, "Capriccio" von Strauss, großteils in Live-Dokumenten.

Afternoon on 3 - Thursday Opera Matinee: Il Bravo (The Assassin) by Saverio Mercadante from Wexford
The thrilling 2018 Wexford Festival staging of Saverio Mercadante's opera "Il Bravo" (The Assassin), starring Rubens Pelizzari and Ekaterina Bakanova.

Presented by Tom McKinney

Jonathan Brandani (conductor)

The libretto by Gaetano Rossi and Marco Marcello was based on the play "La Vénétienne" by Auguste Anicet-Bourgeois, which was in turn based on James Fennimore Cooper's novel "The Bravo". Set in 16th-century Venice, the Bravo of the title is a tormented character who long ago killed his wife in a fit of jealousy; unjustly accused of plotting against the state, he has been forced by the Council of Ten to become their secret hired assassin, while his father is held hostage to compel his obedience. The story also involves Pisani, a young man under sentence of banishment, in love with a girl whom he believes to be immured in Venice; Violetta, the girl in question, who has been under the protection of the Bravo since the murder of her guardian by a would-be abductor; and Teodora, a wealthy foreigner living in Venice, who turns out to be not only Violetta’s mother but also the Bravo’s wife, whom he had not killed after all. To compound these complications the Bravo, moved by Pisani’s predicament, allows him to borrow the mask and dagger of his office and impersonate the official assassin for two days. In this capacity, Teodora employs him to rescue her daughter from the stranger who has apparently abducted her (that is, the Bravo himself). At the end of Act 2 Teodora, in the middle of a brilliant ball, sets fire to her own palace; the last act is largely concerned with the revealing of identities and the unravelling of family knots and, although Violetta and Pisani escape to freedom, Teodora is convicted of arson, and her death at her own hand cheats the Bravo of his last hope of happiness.
