Now that we have the editing question resolved, let's get back to the topic.

Why did Mallory kill Nolan?
For treason
For jealousy
For something else
...or all of the above?

That's pretty unlikely.

As far as I know the last flashback wasn't in any released version. It was restored in the mid 90s in Italy.

I beg to differ, and I don't know how old you are, but I remember seeing the full version on its initial release in 1971 in a theatre in Montréal.

As far as I know, the major editing of Leone movies as in OUATITW, DYS and OUATIA was done by the studios and not by Leone himself. In fact against his will.
This is a the main reason these films didn't get the recognition they deserved on initial release as they have gained with the full Director's cut in later years.

It is said that Leone himself cut the beating scene of Harmonica in OUATITW, the Viega torture scene and the Juan taunt of Mallory in the desert similar to the Tuco and Blondie scene in TGTBATU, in DYS

The full version of DYS as we have on DVD today is the european version released in 1971 as intended by Leone with all the flashbacks. Luckily up here in Canada this was the version we got as well. Than came the cropped FOD mainly for TV for way too many years.
So all the flashbacks do have significance IMHO.

This great montage of the DYS flashbacks make a movie in themselves:

I met someone recently who is like me, a Leone afficeando and we got talking about the shooting and its motives.

He holds to the belief that Coburn shot Warbeck out of jealousy and the revolution was just a pretense. He points to the last scene flashback were we see Sean smile than fade out in anger at seeing Warbeck and Vivienne embracing passionately‎.

My position: I point out the underlying Ménage-à-trois, which he doesn't see. In the flashback, I see Sean smile than turn to ecstasy by being turned on by the kiss. He shot Warbeck for treason and has been ripped apart about it ever since, for killing his lover.

Does anyone else have a take on this?

what do you guys wear to a Morricone concert? do you wear a jacket, or are dress pants/shirt okay? (excuse my ignorance and lack of culture.... I've only been to Metallica or Ozzy Osbourne concerts in the past  ;) )
The Barclay's center appears to be a stadium so as you would for Metallica is OK.
Had he been at Carnegie Hall,  a dresseir look might be more appropriate.
The important thing is to dress comfortably because stadium seats aren't the most comfortable for long periods. IMHO.

Ths will be my 2nd concert since 2007.
I live in Montréal Québec so New York City is fairly close at 570 km.
Los Angeles is too far, across the continent and I don't see the point to have repeat concerts.

@ Milan

Yes, the UN video is nice but a little short compared to the others you and I have.
But having seen this orchestra in person it has a special meaning for me.

With Google translation, the articles also mentioned how packed the hall was with people having to sit in the aisles.

BTW Are you going to one of the US concerts?

can you find out from her who the soprano at the Barclays Center will be?
According to Susanna Rigacci's website, she was on stage with Ennio no later than last night in Kiev.
She has done every concert since Ennio started touring in 2002, so expect her in NY and LA.

After a while, you get use to her rendition...

The last thread was really nice, with that member of the choir joining the discussion...

It was precisely Sandra, the choir member who alerted me a few months ago of the upcoming US Morricone concerts.

I was sending her information on the release of the UN concert from 2007 in which she took part, the same orchestra and choir who played RCMH for us the following night.

If memory serves, at least Cigar joe, Firecracker and Peacemaker went to the 2007 concert.

For english titles of some of the movies check out this Australian concert setlist from March 2nd 2012:

There is also In the line of fire, an enjoyable Eastwood flick and Burn for Abolisson...
