Contrary to the previous editions, the piano-vocal score presented here is the first to be based on the composer’s autograph and thus features the original version of the work as originally intended by Massenet. Since the singer of the world premiere apparently had vocal problems, Massenet subsequently made some reductions in the closing duo, which have now been eliminated.
