There are two sighs of relief every night in the life of an opera manager.
The first comes when the curtain goes up The second sigh of relief comes when
the final curtain goes down without any disaster, and one realizes,
gratefully, that the miracle has happened again.

-Sir Rudolf Bing (1902-1997) general manager of the Metropolitan Opera 1950
to 1972
