The article discusses sound recording glitches and their solutions. When reinforcing large indoor opera, stage monitoring for soloists and chorus is critical. The ondeck sound must be kept as "acoustic" as possible, but maximum coverage should be around all action areas. Folding back spot microphones in the orchestra with an "inverted orchestra foldback" approach reduces feedback issues. Typically, strings are placed throughout the pit opening, woodwinds are directly under the apron edge and brass/percussion are deeper understage.
