At least they've put back "You May Take Me to the Fair", which was dropped at some point after the opening of the original production. It's a beautiful score, but a very easy sing for reasonably good to excellent singers. "If Ever I Would Leave You" sounds stunning as sung by Robert Goulet, and I don't know if it goes above a D or an Eb. Nothing otherwise calling for really bravura singing in the writing. As for Guinevere, Julie Andrews made having an easy sing part of her agreement with Lerner and Loewe after "My Fair Lady" gave her vocal troubles (besides the difficulty of the score, having to do almost all of what amounts to all of the "Pygmalion" script). But yes, now Guinevere appears to now have only one duet and a reprise in the 2nd act.
