ABOUT

Scalia/Ginsburg | Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia shared two things — a deep philosophical opposition and a deep love of opera. But what would happen if the two unlikely friends and ideological opposites had to appear before a Higher Power? Composer Derrick Wang’s charming comic opera — featuring actual lines from the justices’ opinions and speeches and musical nods to Handel, Mozart, and Puccini — is “a perfect...jewel.” (Opera Today) Starring Jennifer Zetlan as Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Brian Cheney as Justice Antonin Scalia, and Ben Wager as the Commentator.

Performed in English with English supertitles.

Directed by Fenlon Lamb. Conducted by Sara Jobin
