Description: Two more equally enjoyable actes de ballet in this budget-priced reissue, 1748's Pygmalion being the longer at 45 minutes; the 33-minute Nélée appears to have been performed but the date is unknown as it survives only in a rare autograph manuscript. French texts. Les Arts Florissants; William Christie. Original 1992 Harmonia Mundi release.
