I will note, however that I never saw a more careful performance of anything! While nobody throttled down or marked anything, everybody danced with an extreme concentration on placement, and getting the heels ALL the way down at every opportunity! I ached for a good two days after that experience, and thereafter, if the Festival were rained out, the dance venue was made the old Yale Drama School Theater when we made a representation to the Festival producer of the difficulties of the beautiful but treacherous Woolsey Hall.
Wow! wotta war story! Does this provide some anecdotal answers to the question?

I've read that some POB dancers had problems because the stage of the Opera Garnier (the "old" Opera, built around 1875)
was raked, while the stage of the Opera Bastille (the "new" one, opened in 1989) isn't, and they have to dance on both stages...
