This production is not available for streaming

POP presented the LA premiere of Derrick Wang's Scalia/Ginsburg at The Highland Park Ebell Club! 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 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. This show was presented as a double bill along with Gilbert & Sullivan’s Trial by Jury.

This production was sung in English with supertitles and accompanied by a live orchestra.
