It is 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 (like 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, it is almost certainly public domain in the USA as well.

Chorus, I should imagine, for the munchkins at least?...
I seem to recall that several of Baum's 15? 16? Oz books were staged and that at least one was written with a view to stage production (rather than this being a happy eventuality). (This is of course a production of the first book though changed in several details- though not as much so as the best-known movie, which just for example condenses the four witches into three.) - Schissel (Should L. Frank or, given our preference not to use abbreviations, Lyman Frank Baum be used, re librettist?)
