Act Three, and all went well. Much laughter in the audience at the Cook's scene, and a round of applause for the scenery of the third scene (with the Oranges). During Linetta's scene I thought of Linette. But overall the act did not have the success of Act Two. When Baklanov came backstage he said merely that he thought there should be some cuts.

In Act Four Chelio came in a bar late and half his quarrel with Fata went awry. In the second scene St Leger did not start the March on time.* The guards' firing of their weapons was late. The final rushing about still seemed aimless; I took an insanely fast tempo. I do not remember going out to bow at the conclusion of the opera, but at the start of Act Four, when I went to take my palce on the conductor's stand, I received a prolonged ovation, initiated by the orchestra.
