Subject: Re: Troyens cut

I understand there were these cuts too:

- A section of dance music in the Act 1 ceremonial section

- All of the dance music around "Gloire a Didon" in Act 3

- Two thirds of the dance music preceding the big  Act IV ensemble & love duet, including the section that provides the major music contrast in the act after the Royal Hunt & Storm.

We were fortunate in SF to have no cuts. With Runnicles' vigorous tempi, it all came in just under 5 hours...:)

    Subject: Re: Cuts in Chicago Lyric's Les Troyens

    I find it unfortunate that the LOC decided to omit the Trojan sentries duet
    from Troyens.  I love the duet because it is the only real comic relief in =
    a long
    and of course magnificent work that I have loved for many years.  The tenor=
    that follows the duet is such a change from what comes before that I find
    Enee's aria even more thrilling.  How much time was saved because of the
    omission?  Give me a break!
