"First and foremost, the recording is by far the most idiomatic of all commercial issues. Finally what a pleasure it is to listen to a conductor who collaborates in such a sympathetic way with his singers. At budget price, it earns the highest recommendation."

George Jellinek
WQXR (New York)

"This is a strong cast, composed of front-line singers from the Opera, all veteran interpreters of their roles...Helena Bouvier...sings the role with peerless musicality. Her tone is rich and even in scale, and she changes from sensuality to vindictiveness smoothly and convincingly, without resorting to emotional excesses...[I]t's authentic French spirit makes the Naxos set a valuable historical document."
