The music director did. The director, working with him, had gone through the libretto parcelling out the lines to the ensemble as the script called for, then went to compare with the score and found that some of them were NOT still included.

For that scene, yes.

However, it's still strange that MTI licenses scripts and scores that legitimately don't match.
