Navigation etc.

There doesn't seem to be chorus anywhere in this opera except that for the last 5 pages of Act III, there is a section for "soprani, contralto, tenore". Since this sometimes is meant for all of the soloists to sing together, this work is tagged for both with and without chorus for now. One tag can be removed if a scholarly source weighs in on one or the other option.
