LISTED TIMES ARE GMT

A Word About Timings

All timings are listed in both Greenwich Mean Time and Eastern Daylight Time. Europe and North America are both 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, eight (8) hours for Alaska, and nine (9) hours for Hawaii. In UK, Ireland and Portugal add one (1) hour to GMT. In most of the rest of Europe add one (2) hours (some Eastern European countries are three (3) 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.

Saturday Opera: Verdi's La forza del destino from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden

Leonora and Don Alvaro's secret elopement goes horribly wrong when Leonora's father accidentally gets killed by Alvaro.

Separated in the confusion, the lovers instead seek refuge in spirituality and solitude, but Leonora's brother hasn't forgotten and is determined to get revenge. Will fate bring them all together again? Verdi's epic opera combines love, war, religion and fate, and is sung by a stellar cast including Sondra Radvanovsky, Brian Jagde and Etienne Dupuis, conducted by Mark Elder.

In a career spanning six decades in the theatre, Giuseppe Verdi (1813–1901) composed 26 operas, at least half of which are at the core of today's repertoire. Francesco Maria Piave (1810–76), the librettist for La Forza del Destino, provided texts for many of Verdi's operas, including Ernani in 1844, and then I due Foscari (1844), Attila (1846), Macbeth (the 1847 first version), Il Corsaro (1848), Stiffelio (1850), Rigoletto (1851), La traviata (1853), Simon Boccanegra (the 1857 first version), Aroldo (1857), and Macbeth (the 1865 second version).

Piave would have also prepared the libretto for Aida when Verdi accepted the commission for it in 1870, but he suffered a stroke which left him paralysed and unable to speak. Verdi helped to support his wife and daughter, proposing that "an album of pieces by famous composers be compiled and sold for Piave's benefit". The composer paid for his funeral when he died nine years later in Milan aged 65 and arranged for his burial at the Monumental Cemetery.

For La forza del destino, Verdi and Piave based it on a play by Ángel de Saavedra, Duke of Rivas (1791–1865), and also incorporated a scene from Wallensteins Lager by Friedrich Schiller (1759–1805)

First performed in the Bolshoi Kamenny Theatre of Saint Petersburg, Russia, on 29 October 1862.

Sung in Italian.
