Misc. Comments

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.
