Does music matter?

Ah, but that "recorded period song" is supposed to seem to emanate from the little table radio on the bar, operated by the bartender. Possibly the meaning of this, like other telling details in old ballets, has been omitted or otherwise lost - played too loudly over the theater P.A.? - in your recent experience? For me, it's a great set-up: At the curtain, we look, listen in, get the mood of the scene - an empty bar - and then those four fast drum-beats from the orchestra in the pit, forte!, BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM!, and we're off!
