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 1923 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.

A suite of dances was extracted from the score. Part of the third scene was revised in February 1924, but the revision was never performed. The full score of the revision (but not its version, also by the composer) was first published as an appendix to the volume of the opera in the SW (Sämliche Werke).
