Italian Opera is rich of traditions. Many of the wonderful arias, duetti, concertati or scenes include elements not written in the score, but anyway requested when conducting or singing.

Rallentando, accelerando, fermata when not required, different pitches or lines to sing are just some examples of the differences between what is requested to perform and what is actually printed on the score.

This is because Italian Opera has always been a living thing. Where modifications happen in no time, due to stage director requests or for other different reasons and the conductor and the singer should be ready to adapt as quickly as possible to every sudden change.
