Scalia/Ginsburg
Composer: Derrick Wang

Librettist: Derrick Wang
Synopsis
What happens when U.S. Supreme Court Justices go before a Higher Power? In this comic opera by composer-librettist Derrick Wang, Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia must pass through three cosmic trials to secure their freedom. The catch: they may have to agree on the Constitution. Derrick Wang’s Scalia/Ginsburg is a valentine to law and opera, where the law’s leading players go toe-to-toe and trill-to-trill in a (gentle) parody of operatic proportions. Opinions will be offered. Dissents will be delivered. And justice will be sung. || Scalia/Ginsburg is an American comic opera in one act by composer-librettist Derrick Wang, inspired by the opinions of U.S. Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia. Introduced at the Supreme Court of the United States in 2013 by NPR's Nina Totenberg, the opera has received national attention, including a front-page article in The Wall Street Journal and concert presentations of excerpts by the Washington National Opera, Glimmerglass Festival, Castleton Festival, Maryland Opera Studio, and Second Circuit Judicial Conference (co-sponsored by Columbia Law School, with artists from Opera Saratoga). || Scalia/Ginsburg will receive its world premiere production at the Castleton Festival (Castleton, Virginia) on July 11, 17, and 19, 2015. The production will be directed by Broadway and film star Maria Tucci. Tickets go on sale on January 5, 2015.
