"Most"? Can you cite which houses do this?

Looking at recent (in the past 5 years) programme books from a dozen
different houses in different countries I do not see a single instance where
"all the men are listed first and then the women". If anything, European
houses frequently list the musical director first, followed by the stage
director and other members of the production team. In my own experience the
cast is listed in order of appearance, or in order of relative role importance.
