Notes and Editorial Reviews

Atys remains one of Christie's greatest successes on record; it is full of good things, and many of them are also included on the single-disc highlights selection (notably the delightful Sleep scene of Act III). With consistently fine singing and superb recording, this disc contains about a third of the opera.
