Event description
Opera Las Vegas presents the west coast premiere of Wang's 1-act opera inspired by the friendship of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia.

About this Event

Inspired by the unlikely friendship of U.S. Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia, Scalia/Ginsburg was launched at a special presentation at the Supreme Court of the United States in 2013 before receiving its world premiere production in 2015 at renowned conductor Lorin Maazel’s Castleton Festival. A sold-out second production followed in 2017 at The Glimmerglass Festival. In 2018, Opera North’s production of Scalia/Ginsburg debuted an intimate new seven-player orchestration in New Hampshire at the height of the midterm election season. In 2019, Opera Delaware’s opening of Scalia/Ginsburg (in a new production and orchestration) became the highest-grossing performance in the company’s 74-year history. In the upcoming 2020 election year, Scalia/Ginsburg will receive new productions in Florida (Opera Naples), Ohio (Toledo Opera) and here in Las Vegas with a stellar production by Opera Las Vegas. See you in court!
