sitzprobe
 n.— «When the orchestra is ready, we have what the germans call a Sitzprobe and the Italians a prova all’italiana: The singers sit on the stage and sing their parts, accompanied for the first time by the orchestra, without having to worry about movement or acting.» —by Georg Solti Memoirs Oct. 1, 1998.
