Copyright
Misc. Notes According to Altmann's notes to the Eulenburg edition full score (ca.1920?), Farrenc released this with a German and French text, the latter by N. and Merville; and retained the first version of the opera's division in three acts. (Will have to check to see if that's an accurate description of what we have here. Probably not what Beethoven authorized...)
