Afternoon Concert20180503

Penny Gore presents a production of Weber's fantasy opera Oberon from Bavarian State Opera

Unique performances with BBC Orchestras, Choirs and other great orchestras

Penny Gore presents highlights from this year's BBC Young Musician keyboard finalists.

Showcasing the UK's brightest young musical talent for over 30 years.

This week's Opera Matinee features some of the best operatic music you've never heard. Productions of Weber's fantasy opera Oberon are like hen's teeth (or perhaps unicorns' horns) because the plot is even more crazy than most in opera, there's too much talking, and Weber died young before he could replace the spoken dialogue with music. But for this broadcast of a lively new production from Bavarian State Opera we've minimised the talking to leave you with the music Weber did compose. And it's absolutely brilliant.
(Special shout-out to Wagner fans: see if you can spot the bits RW cribbed. It's not a tough assignment: some of them are gobsmackingly obvious...)
