19 RO(C)H – C for contralto in R[oyal] O[pera] H[ouse] and it’s a roc.
20 D,ALLES – rapids in the US (there’s a Google data center in The Dalles, next to a river for hydroelectrity) and too bad it wasn’t a down clue then the wordplay could have been Deutschland Uber Alles.
22 A,CHA[r]GE – aching according to Tennyson and ref. his Charge of the Light Brigade.
25 LE(A)T – a trench for bringing water to a millwheel which happens to be an archaic meaning of race as well.

32 VIVE[r][s] – vivers = Scots food and VIVE = Scots lively
33 SEGOL – rev(loges=boxes) and the therefore sign looks a single dot over 2 dots and the Hebrew segol diacritical looks like an upside version thereof. Is this what Azed meant?

23 C,RAVER – beggar
24 GERENT – archaic ruler – hidden in “danger entertains”.
