Instrumentation can be (and should be) filled in the instrumentation fields from the full scores above (not just from the overtures but from the rest of the scores. Of course, the librettist's death in 1974 means that the majority of the work is PD-US-only, or PD-nowhere (given its 1930 publication date!), until 2025.
