lists a chorus in this, and although there is a "choro" at the end of the opera, it is unclear from the libretto or the score, whether it is just the principal singers, or whether the soldiers and other crowd people sing as well (there were no choruses earlier in the opera). Accordingly, a tag has been added for "voices, chorus, orchestra". One will eventually have to be removed.
