Note from Sirius Website:   December anniversary of the premiere of John Corigliano’s The Ghosts of Versailles, and Met Opera Radio on SiriusXM celebrates the occasion with a broadcast of the opera originally recorded on January 4, 1992, during its premiere season. Commissioned by the Met and with a libretto by William M. Hoffman, the work imagines an opera put on by the ghost of Beaumarchais for the ghost of Marie Antoinette and the other spectral residents of Versailles. The sold-out, seven-performance premiere run featured an all-star cast that included Teresa Stratas, Håkan Hagegård, Renée Fleming, Graham Clark, Gino Quilico, and Marilyn Horne”
