Grove Music lists this as an opera with dialogue, "songs pubd", which presumably means that the whole opera was never published. The instrumentation of the accompaniments to the songs is therefore unknown, but according to the practice of the day, would have included various instruments that would constitute an "orchestra" of sorts.
