The canoe torches are an ongoing problem they have been trying to fix. They have spent a ton of money and tried several new systems and nothing is working, they haven't figured out what the problem is yet. They have been completely replaced and still don't work. They are still trying.
As for the snake not slithering and the lotus flower not opening- This has NOTHING to do with people not being trained correctly and EVERYTHING to do with them being trained correctly. These are contingencies that are in place for safety. I have no idea what show you were at so I can only guess but if both of those things happened it was probably for wind. Remember, just because you don't think it's windy in the stands doesn't mean it's not windy on the stage, or that the wind isn't blowing the water just right so that the stage is soaked. Rather than cancel a performance for these kinds of conditions they have these contingencies.
Barge drivers should not be hitting each other and there are a number of other things that yes, need to be fixed but those two issues should not be counted as bad show as in someone not doing their job. The performers make those decisions based on how they feel about their safety in the moment.
