Central Florida Vocal Arts presents Scalia/Ginsburg at the Dr. Phillips Center

March 15 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EDT

Opera / Live at the Dr. Phillips Center: Hailed as “a dream come true” (Ruth Bader Ginsburg), a “perfect…jewel” (Opera Today), and “the kind of opera that should be everywhere” (OperaWire), Scalia/Ginsburg is a one-act operatic comedy by composer-librettist Derrick Wang about the unlikely friendship between U.S. Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia — and the pivotal moment that would change the Supreme Court for years to come. Justices Ginsburg and Scalia themselves wrote forewords to Derrick Wang’s libretto, an early version of which was published in the Columbia Journal of Law and the Arts and excerpted as a chapter in Justice Ginsburg’s 2016 book My Own Words. The Los Angeles Times wrote: “Could we please make it a constitutional requirement that no one can be sworn into office in the White House or Congress without having first seen Scalia/Ginsburg?”

March 15-17 at the Dr. Phillips Center

Presented in partnership with Alterity Orchestra and the Timucua Arts Foundation, with generous support from Lawrence Haber. Attendees will receive a discount code to Scalia/Ginsburg as a thank you gift.

Timucua will be hosting Scalia/Ginsburg: Arts as a Catalyst on Friday, 2/29 at 7:30pm.
