With the original backing track, the first half the overture was completely pre-recorded and the live pit played with the track for the second half. I have no idea what it is now after the new tracks were swapped in around 2008. When they recorded the new title song track they intentionally pre-recorded more instruments so they could continue cutting back on live players. The orchestra is drowned in so much reverb it's hard to tell what is live and what is not, or if there are extra sweetener tracks like there were in Vegas. The practically no-brass orchestration used by the non-replica US/UK tour and the recent world tour is likely what London is getting, and it sounds terrible, IMO
