The Leopard

Sunday 11 May 2008 20:00-21:35 (Radio 3)

By Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, and adapted for radio by Michael Hastings.

Don Fabrizio, a member of the old Italian aristocracy, contemplates his obsolescence amidst the great social changes during the Risorgimento of the 19th century. The head of an opulent household in Sicily, he reflects nostalgically on the past as his family grows to maturity and Garibaldi's republican movement puts an end to the feudal system and the traditions of the old bourgeoisie.
