This libretto text is on several websites, and was presumably copied from one of them. Copyright in the translation may therefore be dubious. Mark1 12:39, 28 December 2005 (UTC)
I'm fairly sure the translation is PD, its been around since before 1923 judging from the scores I've come across. I transwikied it out to Wikisource, though. I felt the WP article would be better off having a synopsis of each movement, and linked to the WS page for anyone interested in reading the full libretto.
