During the second act of Giordano's Fedora, there's a pianist (Boleslao Lazinski !) and he doesn't play banjo !
The piano piece is not very long but it's a good one. 
Of course, there are many stage "bandas" in Rossini's operas (Barbiere, Donna del Lago  ...), Meyerbeer's Crociato, Verdi's Ballo in maschera (and in the french original version Gustave III by Auber), in Don Carlo's autodafé,first act of Rigoletto, Don Giovanni (playing Mozart and Amrtin Soler), first act of Traviata, second act of Tosca...  
In The Daughter of the Regiment, the Marquise plays piano during Marie's singing lesson.
Aida's trumpets are played on stage.

Objet: Offstage instruments

Dear collective wisdom (with apologies for cross-posting),

For a research project at Ohio State University, School of Music, we are currently assembling a database of musical pieces in which composers call for one or more instruments to be played "offstage".

Classic examples from the Western symphonic repertoire include: (1) the offstage trumpet in Ludwig van Beethoven's Leonore Overtures Nos. 2 & 3, (2) the offstage oboe in the third movement ("Scène aux champs") from Hector Berlioz' Symphonie Fantastique, and (3) the offstage female choir in "Neptune" from Gustav Holst's The Planets.

We would be very grateful for your kind help in drawing our attention to as many other examples as possible that you may be aware of!

Thanks in advance,
Niels Chr. Hansen & David Huron
