It was controversial back then as well. Originally a Black ensemble had been engaged as the chorus- but refused to sing the N-word in Ol' Man River being replaced and the last minute with a studio choir - The Ambrosian Singers.
That is correct, and it runs very long and it is every-minute-magnificent, and it can't ever, ever be staged as is. Unfortunately. Starting with the very historically correct N word. Inappropriate today.
