Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum 'threshold of originality' to qualify for copyright as an 'adaptation'. They may not be public domain elsewhere.

Extra Information The vocal score was also arranged by Tchaikovsky with Yosif Kotek and Yury Messer, 1879. In 1880 Tchaikovsky made minor revisions to the opera (incorporated into the 1884 edition of the vocal score, 1884) and in 1882 he transposed Joan's part from soprano to mezzo-soprano (first published in appendices to Jurgenson's full and vocal scores, 1899)
