Notes & Reviews:

"Above all: simply don't obey", Ariane's words here could also double as the motto of composer Pual Dukas' opera inspired by the original french fairy tale, Ariane et Barbe-Bleue. Starring Deborah Polaski, Jane Henschel, Kwangchul Y oun, Ruxandra Donose with the Slovak Philharmonic Choir, Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien and Bertrand de Billy, this 2-CD set is as brilliant as the stars who perform on it.

MusicWeb International
Bertrand de Billy is a strong advocate for the work in this live recording from a concert performance in the Vienna Konzerthaus. The sound is vivid enough and chorus and orchestra are splendid.

The Guardian
The soundworld of Paul Dukas's only opera, a seductive mixture of Straussian opulence and French transparency, makes any performance of Ariane et Barbe-Bleue compelling, even before the teasing symbolism of Maurice Maeterlinck's libretto weaves its own spell. It is one of the great undervalued operas of the early 20th century, a proto-feminist take on the Bluebeard myth, in which Mélisande is also retrospectively revealed (after Maeterlinck's stage play and Debussy's opera based on it) as one of the serial murderer's former wives.
