The myth of Phaedra and Hippolytus, as terrible as it is fascinating, has been retold by many artists over the centuries, including composers. This recording presents Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne's opera in its complete form since the premiere. It reveals a work whose classical surface conceals a style that is vehement, exalted and threatening by turns, a thrilling testimony to the bubbling energy of pre-romanticism. Served by the total commitment of the Orfeo Orchestra and Purcell Choir under the direction of Gy�rgy Vashegyi, the drama closes in on the inescapable destinies of Ph�dre, Hippolyte and Th�s�e, movingly sung by Judith van Wanroij, Julien Behr and Tassis Christoyannis.
