This work is likely not in the public domain in the US (due to first publication with the required notice after 1922, plus renewal or "restoration" under the GATT/TRIPS amendments), nor in the EU and those countries where the copyright term is life+70 years. However, it is public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and in other countries (China, Japan, S. Korea) where the copyright term is life+50 years.

It is difficult to tag this. Honegger originally wrote this as incidental music, but later revised it twice, once as an opera, and once as an oratorio. Since this page lists the first performance as being in the Monte Carlo Opéra, the assumption is that this page is for the opera. The other versions are probably different enough that they will have to have their own pages.
