John Corigliano’s The Ghost of Versailles was commissioned by the Metropolitan Opera to celebrate its centennial anniversary. The work, however, was not performed until 1991- eight years after the centennial season. The piece was an instant hit, featuring a large cast and extravagant scenery and costuming. This recording is from the LA Opera, conducted by James Conlon. “It’s comic and serious, entertaining and erudite, silly and thoughtful, emotional and mysterious, harrowing and uplifting, intimate and over-the-top—and the more times you see it, the more you’ll find in it and the more you’ll get out of it.”
