Published by W. Ford, George Street, Sydney. Opera revised and newly orchestrated by (later Sir) Charles Mackerras in 1963 (the original orchestration of the opera is lost.) In this form a recording has been released (Sydney Symphony, Cast, ... conducted by Alexander Briger) on ABC Classics, lasting a bit over 2 hours.

(Ballad opera: described in Wikipedia as a ballad opera. the article on ballad operas in Wikipedia suggests that pastoral operas might be closest, but sticking with operas tag for now) (ES)
