A recording of George Antheil and Michael Dyne's satirical one act opera, “Venus in Africa”. According to the program notes published by G. Schirmer Inc. the opera is a comedy about the visit of two young lovers (Charles and Yvonne) to Tunisia where Charles asks an ancient statue of Venus to teach him about love.
