LISTED TIMES ARE GMT

A Word About Timings

All timings are listed in both Greenwich Mean Time and Eastern Daylight Time. North America and Europe are now on Daylight 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 four (4) hours (from GMT) for the Eastern Time Zone, five (5) hours for the Central Time Zone, and six (6) hours for the Mountain Time Zone. Subtract seven (7) hours for the Pacific Time Zone and eight (8) hours for Alaska, and nine (9) hours for Hawaii. UK, Ireland and Portugal are one (1) hoour ahead of GMT. In most of the rest of Europe add two (2) hours (some Eastern European countries are three (3) hours ahead of GMT). In the Southern Hemisphere, Australia and New Zealand are on Standard Time (Australia is 10 hours ahead of GMT; New Zealand is 12 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
A sea of misery Composer of the Week,
Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924) Episode 4 of 5

Donald Macleod, in conversation with Sir Antonio Pappano, traces the developmental line of Puccini's meticulously crafted dramatic heroines. Today they discuss Puccini's personal favourite, the tragic geisha, Madama Butterfly.

Manon Lescaut, Mimì,Tosca, Madama Butterfly and Suor Angelica are women who capture our hearts and connect directly with our emotions. Recorded at the Royal Opera House, seated beneath several striking portraits of the composer, Tony dips into the scores to show how Puccini created these unforgettable characters and how with each one, he was seeking to perfect the synthesis between music and action, while constantly looking to push the boundaries of his musical language.

Born in 1858 in Lucca into a dynasty of musicians, Puccini was destined to be a church composer. That all changed when at age of 18, he walked to Pisa to see Verdi's Aida. It proved to be a formative experience. In that moment, he determined to become a man of the theatre, writing music exclusively for the stage. He went on to produce a dozen operas in fulfilment of that ambition - the last of them left incomplete at his death in 1924 - include La Bohème, Tosca and Madama Butterfly, still the cornerstones of any opera house's repertory.

Based on a play he'd seen in London by David Belasco, Madama Butterfly ended up causing Puccini more heartache than either Tosca or La bohème. At the opening night at La Scala Milan on 17th February 1904 the action on stage was drowned out by the catcalls from the audience. Worse was to come. When the curtain came down at the end there was total silence. Out of all this anguish, what really stands out is Puccini's creation of surely the most heart-breaking and delicate of heroines, Cio-cio San, Madama Butterly.

Afternoon on 3 - Thursday Opera Matinee: Verdi's Nabucco
Placido Domingo sang the title role of Nabucco for the very first time anywhere in the world as part of the Royal Opera House's Verdi 200 celebrations in 2013, and Liudmyla Monastyrska dazzled in the role of Abigaille. Domingo takes on the baritone role of Nebuchadnezzar, King of the Babylonians, in the biblical story which so much resounded in the hearts of Italians at the time. The fight of the Hebrews against oppression and exile took a different twist in a tale of love and patriotism, represented in the celebrated chorus 'Va pensiero', one of Verdi's most famous pieces. Nicola Luisotti conducts the chorus and orchestra of the Royal Opera House. Followed by performances from this week's featured orchestra, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in music by Copland and Karl Jenkins.

SPECIAL PROGRAM: Live aus dem Gärtnerplatztheater in München:
Franz Lehár: "Die lustige Witwe"

Neue Fassade, neue Probenräume, neue Technik - das frisch renovierte Münchner Gärtnerplatztheater feiert seine Wiedereröffnung mit einem traditionsträchtigen Stück: Franz Lehárs "Lustige Witwe" in einer Inszenierung von Josef E. Köpplinger und unter der Leitung von Anthony Bramall.
Gratulation! Es ist fertig. Das frisch renovierte und umgebaute Gärtnerplatztheater eröffnet die neue Spielzeit in funkelnagelneuen Räumen. Heute, am 19. Oktober 2017, feiert es seinen makellosen Glanz mit der Eröffnungspremiere. Ein traditionsträchtiges Stück hat sich Intendant Josef E. Köpplinger dafür ausgesucht. Schon elf Mal hatte es seit seiner Uraufführung 1905 in diesem Haus Premiere - immer mit zugkräftigen Namen. Einer davon: Jopie Heesters. Lange galt er als DER Danilo; richtig: Franz Lehárs Lustige Witwe gibt sich heute die Ehre.
Aber wir schreiben das Jahr 2017. Das Gärtnerplatztheater ist 152 Jahre alt und hat nach vielen kleineren Eingriffen nun einen fünfjährigen Um- und Neubau überstanden. Alles frisch. Alles schön. Alles anders! Und so sollte auch die neue Lustige Witwe sein. Ganz München ist gespannt auf die erste Premiere im neuen Haus. Ganz München - und mit ihm die ganze Operetten- und Musiktheaterszene. Ein Coup muss sie werden, diese Witwe. Mitreißend, überzeugend, zeitgemäß. Natürlich, ohne die Wurzeln zu vernachlässigen. Und Josef E. Köpplinger ist genau der Richtige, um diese Vorgaben zu erfüllen. Schon oft hat er in seinen Inszenierungen gezeigt, dass er Operetten doppelbödig, witzig, kreativ, bunt und doch auch mit Geschichtsbewusstsein inszenieren kann. Wie heißt es so schön? Man darf gespannt sein!

Opernkonzert: Mit List und Tücke oder Wie hintergehe ich meinen Nächsten?

Von Sabine Lange

Er ist der Prototyp des hintertriebenen Intriganten: Shakespeares Jago, von Giuseppe Verdi kongenial zur Opernfigur gemacht. Mit welch raffinierter Perfidie, mit welch undurchschaubarer Verstellungskunst und welch abgrundtiefer Bösartigkeit er Menschen in den Tod treibt - das ist einzigartig auf der Bühne. Selbst eine Lady Macbeth, von Machtgier besessen, gewohnt, über Leichen zu gehen, erscheint da plump. Den Nächsten zu hintergehen, um sich selbst Vorteile zu verschaffen, das ist im wirklichen Leben wie auf der Opernbühne ein vielgespieltes Szenario. Ob in der komischen oder der tragischen Oper - den Nächsten nicht zu lieben, sondern auszubooten, ist effektvoller dramaturgischer Wille in zahllosen Opern. (2 hrs.)
