Mireille Delunsch and Simon Keenlyside star in a recording of Gluck's Iphigénie en Tauride with the Musiciens du Louvre conducted by Marc Minkowski.  It can be ordered from  And from and  And from  And from

"Minkowski and his band produce a grandly tragic 'Iphigenie,' with his favorite soprano, Mireille Delunsch, in the title role. She's first-rate, with a reposeful, feminine sound and enough emotional punch to clarify the girl's emotional state. (Christine Goerke is even better on that Boston set but nothing else is.) Delunsch is perfectly partnered by baritone Simon Keenlyside (Oreste) and tenor Yann Beuron (Pylade)."--T. Hashimoto in the
San Francisco Examiner of October 22, 2002.

Gluck: Ifigenia in Tauride 
performed in Italian, with Maria Callas, L'Orchestra del Teatro alla Scala, conducted by Nino Sanzogno.  This recording is for fans of Maria Callas, but I would not recommend it as one's only recording of the work.
