Presented by Solo Opera
September 10 - 12, 2021

Searching for a great way to put behind all the craziness that was 2020 and begin healing the divide between the left and right?  Look no further than Solo Opera's production of Derrick Wang's comedic opera in English, Scalia/Ginsburg.  Inspired by the opinions of the late U.S. Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg (liberal) and Antonin Scalia (conservative), the opera highlights their unlikely bi-partisan friendship and mutual love of opera.  They disagreed on how to interpret the constitution but were both unwavering in their reverence for the sacredness of it.  Filled with witty humor and musical nods to favorite composers, this charming opera is sure to appeal to everyone!

Running Time: approx. 60 minutes, with no intermission
Directed & Produced by Sylvia Amorino
with a seven piece chamber orchestra
Conducted by Maestro Alexander Katsman

Proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 is required for all guests age 12 and over, and face coverings are required to be worn by all guests age two and over when visiting the Lesher Center for the Arts and Bedford Gallery.

Join Solo Opera for a 30 minute pre-talk in the Margaret Lesher Theatre, beginning one hour prior to each performance.
