Also published for the first time are the recently discovered three numbers from The Wise Virgins which, together with those of the Suite, comprised the complete ballet.

The scores have been entirely re-set, and new orchestral parts on hire/rental produced to match the new editions. Orchestral material is available on hire/rental.
