The Ghosts of Versailles

Wolf Trap Opera, 2015

New production

"It is a dazzling thing all around.…The opportunity to hear a modern work of this stature comes along all too rarely, a production of this quality still rarer." Washington Post

"The large contingent of vibrant singer-actors…burrowed into the plot's criss-crossed layers with great flair under the astute guidance of the director Louisa Muller." Opera

"Chances are that Wolf Trap Opera will be using its production of John Corigliano's The Ghosts of Versailles as a touchstone for a long time to come. The venture was satisfying on every level.…The complex layers…inspired deftly detailed stage direction from Louisa Muller, who kept the action fresh and involving." Opera News
