In 2013, a University of Maryland law student with a background in performance and composition started workshopping an opera inspired by the Supreme Court decisions he was studying. The result was Scalia/Ginsburg, which premiered at this summer’s Castleton Festival. Ginsburg, delighted by the result, frequently quotes the work.
