I have never played a complete opera (unless The Gypsy Baron counts) but I've played various well-known arias and duets from various operas. With no two consecutive measures in the same tempo, we can easily spend half an hour at each of several rehearsals working on a 3-minute number, and still not be certain we have all the timing issues solved.

I marvel at how a professional opera orchestra can execute such repertoire. I'm sure they don't have anywhere near as much preparation time as a community group would need. But they always seem to stay right with the singers, and do so for hours at a time.

Learning one's part in a Bruckner symphony seems straightforward enough (not that I've ever had to). But how does one learn one's part a Wagner opera? How does one cope with the infinite number of subtleties, each of which can happen in any number of different ways?
