The full orchestral score is available in the online IMSLP music library.  The choir is in Act I, No. 9, "Valse des Flocons de Neige" or Waltz of the Snowflakes.  Your best bet is to print out that number and make a vocal part from it for your singers.  Since the choir only appears in the middle of the waltz, it would be a good idea for you to retain the full score if you are preparing the singers so that you can teach them their cues.  The score calls for "24 invisible voices, women or children" and is in 2 parts...very simple, parallel thirds.
This took me 10 minutes or less to find. Google is a wonderful thing, and so is the IMSLP library.
