I think this is the only Opera where everyone has a part, even the Trolley.

Most everyone. Surprisingly there's no Lady Elaine in this one.

It's interesting how these early operas didn't use the elaborate sets that we've seen in later years. It looks like they utilize the existing NOM set with a few extra props.

Is the music more or less on par with that of the later operas?

The music is a little less elaborate than in the later operas. Take into account the less-detailed sets for these early operas. The music is much the same. (in my opinion, at least)
