descriptionWith its unprecedented dramatic intensity, Atys was the first opera to feature a plot that revolved around love and the first French tragedy to kill off its lead character on stage. The opera was revived in 1985 when the Opera de Paris called on William Christie and the director Jean-Marie Villegier to stage a celebration of the tercentenary of Lully's death. Resurrected from the ashes, Atys was a key factor in the revival of French baroque music. In 2011, the Opera Comique once again presented Atys, and that production was filmed by FRA Musica for posterity. Featuring tenor Bernard Richter in the title role, supported by Christie and Les Arts Florissants and the amazing production created by Jean Marie Villegier, this film is nothing short of a masterpiece and a milestone in recorded opera.
