The 2014/15 production of “The Ghosts of Versailles”, which featured renowned Icelandic bass Kristinn Sigmundsson as Louis XVI, won in two categories: Best Opera Recording and Best Engineered Classical Album.
The recording was released on the Pentatone label in April 2016. The composer, John Corigliano, said of the recording:
The artists of Los Angeles Opera’s 2014 production made as compelling a case for The Ghosts of Versailles as I heard on its first night at the MET in 1991. To have that performance preserved in a recording of this quality is, for this composer, a dream come true. — John Corigliano
