While “Ghosts” is still a grandiose endeavor, Mr. Conlon and Mr. Tresnjak, an excellent cast and an inspired design team reveal a clearer, lighter, brighter work than the one seen at the Met nearly 25 years ago.
– New York Times –
With an expensive stage set that rivals the royal opera house in Versailles…L.A. Opera’s production of The Ghosts of Versailles at the Chandler Pavilion is a visually stunning affair.
– LA Weekly –
It was a gamble that pays off brilliantly thanks to the exceedingly adroit direction by Tony Award-winner Darko Tresnjak (“A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder”); the architectural grandeur of Alexander Dodge’s set design and its fish-eye lens view of Marie Antoinette’s Petit Trianon theater; the lavish period costumes by Linda Cho; the choreography of Peggy Hickey; the sculptural lighting by York Kennedy; and the illustrative projections by Aaron Rhyne.
Alexander Dodge’s audaciously sumptuous, dream-like set paired with Aaron Rhyne’s impressive projection design create a feast for the eyes. The Ghosts of Versailles is a spectacle you must see to believe.
