I think your right, I think there were some clarinets, and percussion too.

It would be all the instruments in a basic orchestra, violin, viola, cellos, pretty sure I heard string basses, trumpets, baritones, tubas, flutes, bells, percussion, piano, synthesizer (for the organ), bassoons (I heard them specifically) clarinets, oboes, bass clarinet, trombones, french horns... thaat's all I could hear. You can probably find an official list somewhere...

If you look in the program, it tells.

If you're wondering about the touring company, there isn't an oboe, for example, because they used the pared down orchestration. Toronto started out with the complete orchestration but then to cut costs also switched to the pared down version. For those who don't believe there is a difference, I statred getting used to the pared down version, but then saw the show in Hamburg, Germany, where they used the full orchestration and there was a completely different, *full* sound.

Could someone help me?

In The orginal london cast recording, in Entr'Acte, during the first parts of the MotN theme, what instrument has the melody?
Cause I cant figure it out for the life of me.

I reckon it's an oboe. If not, a Cor Anglais (definitely a higher-range double reed instrument)

Okay, in New York the orchestra is

Clarinet, Flute, Violin, Cello, String Bass, percussion, trumpet, and French Horn. They didn't have a bass clarinet, but some don't. The French Horn is the dominate instrument in most of the play, so they have to be there.

As for the intsrument in the beginning of the MotN it would be a it would either a clarinet, but there is a high French Horn with it.

I am an ex band student. I played a French Horn, so I sat infront of most of the instruments. I know most of them by sound.

Going by what I could hear/see last time, there was several violins, french horn, trumpet, clarinet, oboe, flute, bassoon (that would do instead of a bass clarinet, raouls_little_lotte), there was a cello, viola, cor anglais, sevearl percussion instruments and a variety of keyboards eg organ. There's a full listing of instruments in the programme.

What production are you talking about? There isn't a bassoon in the normal musical (either the reduced orchestral version or the full), so I'm assuming you mean the Las Vegas version.

No,it was the London production, I'm about 99% sure there was a bassooon... I could see it!

Did you buy a program? That would be odd if they did have one. It would be sort of like the change from the trio to duet in "Wandering Child". ;)

Nah, they were too expensive. I only think I saw one, CarlottaGuidicelli, that doesn't mean that there definitely is! Why don't you have try and find out for yourself...
