That reminds me:
I once was at a performance of a big symphony orchestra and choir, who 
performed a symphony by Gustav Mahler (professionals on a *big* stage).  
At one point the conductor stopped the performance, turned around to the 
audience and said: "We can do that better (Das können wir besser)." Then 
he started again with the movement where he had broken off. That 
impressed me very much,  I thought it was much more professional than 
somehow awkwardly trying to rescue the performance that had gone wrong.
