    There are a few minor misprints -lines intended for Geronimo that are indicated for the Count and the like- but the biggest problem is the cramped layout. Page numbers and text are sometimes hard to read, especially in the recits. Scenes start in the middle of a page. The score...

    is usable, but had it been stretched over an additional 20-30 pages, it would have been visually clearer. The full libretto is printed at the beginning. An English translation or historic notes would have been nice, especially considering the word play resulting from Geronimo's deafness. I don't know whether the Ricordi score is any better, but if age is compromising your eyesight as it is mine, you might do well to look at it before making a purchase.
