NOTE: “Diabolical Allegro” by Bergunker, No. 5 and 20, etc., in the score should never be played fast, and not like an Agitato. A cynical threat is desired. The repetition of numbers in this cue sheet is simplified by the use of the “LUZ” SYMPHONIC COLOR GUIDE sold by Music Buyers Corporation, 1520 Broadway, New York City. The color suggested for repetitions of numbers designate the Mood or Emotion, and is used as a code for such repetition.
