They have become standard, performative, part of the experience, largely meaningless. (Is some of it due to the ridiculously hyped audiences of TV competition shows where every performance or even a score, never mind a win, on a game show, gets the audience out of its seats?) Long standing ovations at film festivals are still reported as if they are somehow significant. I'm with this writer's criteria: stand for "an unforgettable experience of the highest caliber." I usually do stand just because I want to see the curtain call. But this writer's call to stay seated is compelling. I especially appreciate her account of the audience reaction at Leopoldstadt in London. How often does that happen these days?
