Subject: Interpolated High notes

Is not the whole point of high note endings to lend excitement?  Violetta is in a different mood of determined exhilaration if she tops her Sempre libera with the e-flat.  Gilda is just going to bed if she doesn't trill up to the e in Caro nome, which gives us the feeling that she won't be able to sleep.  Of course it is possible just to enjoy the beautiful singing, but I personally miss that thrill.  Nothing like a tenor belting out a high c.  
Even if, as does happen occasionally, the high notes are a bit flat.
