- First published as a piano duet by Cramer & Co., London, 1873, plate 6542. Published in full score by Bosworth & Co., Leipzig and London, 1898, plate 2341, and piano solo, plate 2386.
- The original theatrical version includes a tenor soloist in the second movement, setting an interpolated text by F. Rizzelli, Nel ciel seren. The ad lib. aspect of this part refers to the suite, not the original incidental music.
- A suite consisting of four movements (1,3,5 & 7) was regularly performed during the composer's lifetime.
(As noted, Shakespeare's text is not spoken/sung during the incidental music so- not listed as librettist. Rizzelli's name added above.)
