NY Times: Justice Ginsburg to attend world premiere of ‘Scalia/Ginsburg’ opera
In the New York Times op-ed “The Unsinkable R.B.G.,”* columnist Gail Collins writes that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will attend the world premiere of Derrick Wang’s opera Scalia/Ginsburg:
This summer, Ginsburg will attend the premiere of “Scalia/Ginsburg,” a one-act opera that the composer Derrick Wang describes as a comedy in which two justices “must pass through three cosmic trials to secure their freedom.” Pieces of it have already been performed, and both Ginsburg and the über-conservative justice Antonin Scalia, a fellow opera lover, are apparently really, really pleased.
The world premiere production of Scalia/Ginsburg takes place on July 11, 17, and 19, 2015, at the Castleton Festival, a summer music and opera festival founded by renowned conductor Lorin Maazel.
