In Europe, when a performance is very late, the audience may applause in order to express disapproval.

Not sure if any one got back to you on this or not.  i was at the
performance in the opera house in the center of the dress circle.  What
appeared to happen was kind of a "crowd psychology thing."  The start was
late because of the HD stuff going on back stage, the lights had gone down
and the orchestra quieted.  Everyone was poised for the arrival of the
conductor and there was some indistinguishable movement real or imagined
near where the conductor usually emerges and applause began throughout the
house but no conductor showed up.  the audience quieted and then in a few
seconds Luisi appeared and strode to the podium amid the usual applause and
cheers.  Perhaps just a little mishap created by the delay and audience
anticipation.  it turned out to be a pretty good performance overall I
thought.  Hope all is well.
