Œdipe à Colone (Ropartz, Guy)

It is very unlikely that this work is public domain in the EU, or in any country where the copyright term is life-plus-70 years. However, it is in the public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and other countries where the term is life-plus-50 years (such as China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1923 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright with no "restoration" under the GATT amendments, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.

Misc. Comments

Unless we're creating separate pages for the orchestral suite and the larger set of incidental music (which can be seen (vocal score) at Internet Archive (see above), the "tag" should certainly include voices and chorus. (There are also melodramas- recited scenes- throughout the work.)
