A note about the tempos:

These full orchestral accompaniment tracks have been created with meticulous attention to and understanding of the composers' every tempo, style and dynamic marks respecting their brilliant ability to express emotions and create dramatic and dynamic contrast. Tempos change everything about who a character is and what they are feeling. Thoughtful consideration was taken of the librettos, stage drama, "singability," breaths and stage movements. The accompaniments are therefore pure and true to the composers' intentions while also providing for the realities of the live stage.

That being said, attention has also been paid to what has become "traditional" in the operatic world, such as fermatas or ritardandos that are not in the score.
