The Surviving Connection

1956 German film version of Zar und Zimmermann

 

They are remarkable survivors—famous overtures from operas that have all but vanished from the stage—and by composers who might otherwise be completely forgotten.

In this hour, eight of these well-known overtures and the stories behind them: Zar und Zimmermann, Zampa, Ruslan and Ludmilla, Light Cavalry, Poet & Peasant, The Merry Wives of Windsor, Martha and Donna Diana.
