I raised no objection to the cut, even though I was sorry to lose the final section of the fifth scene, the shaking to death of the goat. By contrast, I was quite happy to lose the opening of the sixth scene, and although I love the fifth entr'acte very much, it is almost never listened to properly because of the audience talking.

We therefore rehearsed the cut, and I was very glad to see our ballet troupe, a delightful and amusing group of people. We then went to lunch at the Savoy, and then back to rehearse with the orchestra. Ansermet had already done some preliminary rehearsals with the orchestra before I arrived in London, moreover the orchestra was greatly superior to the Frenchmen. Not only that, but there was a completely different atmosphere. These are serious and attentive musicians, not Parisian hirelings.
