GRAND RAPIDS—Opera Grand Rapids is one of the first ten opera companies to ever produce the new American opera, Scalia/Ginsburg, March 14 and 15 at the Betty Van Andel Opera Center. Tickets are available online at
Scalia/Ginsburg is an American opera by composer-librettist Derrick Wang, inspired by the unlikely friendship of U.S. Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia. A buddy comedy with an operatic twist, it reflects the witty style of its subjects by applying “operatic precedent.” Like a Supreme Court opinion, the score of Scalia/Ginsburg is a mosaic of allusions to influential statements of the past.
