"The third BEMF opera CD, Lully’s Psyché from the 2007 Festival and released in July 2008, earned BEMF its third Grammy nomination in the Best Opera category. At the 2005 Festival, BEMF released its first commercial opera recording featuring the 2003 operatic centerpiece, Conradi’s Ariadne. An instant audience and critical success, this recording marked the beginning of BEMF’s outstanding contribution to the current opera discography. Conradi’s Ariadne was followed by Lully’s Thésée, the 2001 operatic centerpiece, and both recordings received Grammy nominations in the Best Opera category."
