The Huguenots music on which the Trooping of the Colour slow march is based seems to be, in fact, not the Prelude but part of the closing Stretta of Act I, incorporating "Ein feste Burg", which recurs throughout the opera, of course.

I think it will probably be found that the Royal Opera - at least the Royal Opera Covent Garden - undertook in 1991 a staging of a German production which had to be withdrawn, mainly due to a failure to foresee that the staging would impose unpaid overtime on the theatre staff, who were customarily paid the usual rates for other works of comparable length - e.g. Gotterdammerung.86.131.144.239 (talk) 11:35, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
