It is very 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 (such as China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1927 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright with no "restoration" under the GATT amendments, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

It is difficult to tag this. Honegger originally wrote this as incidental music, but later revised it twice, once as an opera, and once as an oratorio. Since this page lists the first performance as being in the Monte Carlo Opéra, the assumption is that this page is for the opera. The other versions are probably different enough that they will have to have their own pages.
