At http://www.newyorker.com/critics/music/, Alex Ross is reviewing the
Domingo "Tristan," but if you check that link next week, he will have -
according to Pamela Rosenberg at a symposium yesterday - a "9,500-word
chronicle on the preparation for the Oct. 1 premiere of `Dr. Atomic'."
I don't know how the word count is known in advance, but I think passing
along the information may be worthwhile.
