Misc. Notes
This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was first published before March 1, 1989, and was either first published in the United States, published in the United States within thirty days of its first publication abroad, or its author was a US citizen, and this publication occurred without a compliant copyright notice, and, if published in 1978 or later, the work did not have its copyright registered under a curing provision within five years of publication.
This item, public domain in its country of origin, is likewise public domain in the EU due to the EU's implementation of Rule of the Shorter Term for non-EU works. In some EU countries, this rule may be overridden by bilateral treaties still in force between some EU countries and countries outside the EU (notably the USA).

Misc. Notes *These parts do NOT contain the Act II recitative and song for Strephon, "My bill has now been read a second time" or "Fold your flapping wings". This number, while in the Schirmer vocal score (ed. Treharne edition, No.22), was cut soon after the premiere and is rarely performed due to the darker, angrier tone of the song which contrasts heavily with the lighter character of the rest of the operetta. Optional on-stage military band parts also not present.
