Scalia/Ginsburg – Additional Night Added – Saturday, Oct 13, Opera North, WRJ
Scalia/Ginsburg is a one-act comic opera by composer-librettist Derrick Wang about the power of friendship in a divided world and depicts a friendship that transcended politics and found expression in their shared passion for opera.
Inspired by the unlikely friendship of Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia, Scalia/Ginsburg asks the question: What would happen if these two ideologically opposed judges had to appear before a Higher Power?
Scalia/Ginsburg depicts the unlikely friendship of these two Justices of America’s highest court – a friendship that transcended politics and found expression in their shared passion for opera.
