There were five standing ovations, which drew five encores (including the rollicking theme from ''Flashdance''). After the fifth (''Cabaret''), the orchestra also stood and applauded the conductor. The musicians, with the audience, seemed to be telling Williams, ''Come back.'' But he waved his final goodbyes, which ended the evening, and probably an era.
