Misc. Comments

The ca. 500 page full score in holograph is available in the New York Public Library's Performing Arts Research Collection. The score is also available on microfilm. The Library also has orchestra parts in manuscript.

I'm just finishing up a transcription of the manuscript. Despite the library listing of 500 pages, in fact, the actual page count is about 300, plus some short suplementary passages, such as a page long introduction to the Greek Dance, and a bridge passage intended to facilitate a cut after the Dance of the Desert Girls. The performance time would be around 75 minutes. Museslave 20:16, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
