BTW: "Lost" doesn't only happen to "old" musicals

I went to see Ballet San Jose's production of "Pirates of Penzance" yesterday.

Before the show, Company Director Dennis Nahat came out and gave a little curtain speech. He told us that when the scores arrived for the orchestra, it was discovered that they had delivered the wrong music...not the version already synched up with this work of ballet.

So, the orchestra had to spend 3 days frantically reconstructing what the scores should be to match the ballet version.

Reminded me of 42nd St Moon!
