Misc. Comments

From the date of the operetta, and since Nepomuceno was Brazilian, and "fought for the use of Portuguese in opera and song" (see Wikipedia), it is assumed this is in Portuguese. However, if a score is ever uploaded that proves differently, the language and language tag need to be changed.
