Public Domain - Annotated Piano/Vocal Score and orchestral parts for the second opera written by Herbert - the 1914 50-minute one act, Madeleine. Having written his grand opera, Natoma, in 1911, Herbert next wrote this purely experimental piece featuring a famous opera singer, alone on New Year's Eve but determined NOT to dine alone. Three potential dinner partners drop by only to decline because "this is my one night with my mother." There is only a tiny chorus of servants which has been removed from this version.  Price quoted is for rental only.

These orchestral parts are photocopied original parts used in both original Metropolitan Opera Company production and on the subsequent tour.  The Piano/Vocal has been marked to match the Reh Numbers found in the parts.  There are cuts in these parts most of which are minor with the exception of the total removal of the chorus -- done most likely for the tour.  All cuts are discussed on pages included in the sample.

Current price is reflective of the condition of the orchestral parts.  Once it has been restored, the price will increase.
