    Thanks for sharing! Is there a tracklist anywhere or an explanation which parts have been joined up?
    Thanks, David

    Thanks.

    Since that is an Italian version though, I wonder how accurate it is to the original French. Perhaps I could find the original French and put the English (translated from Italian) next to it. I'm surprised that there are so few sources to get the libretto.

    See if this link works:

    Actually, isn't this the same as the one Roger sourced? Sorry - can't find another so far.

    It's £32 on Amazon UK (it comes with a free recording of the opera):
