Jobert, 1979 with reconstruction and orchestration by Juan Allende-Blin; Durand, 2006, Édition critique des œuvres complètes, VI/3
Debussy worked simultaneously on the libretto and the score, and only delivered the definitive work to Durand in Autumn 1917. The Opera-Comique had programmed La Chute de la maison Usher and Le Diable dans le Beffroi for the 1911-1912 season, but neither of the two works was completed by Debussy.
