Scalia/Ginsburg will take to the stage at the Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater from Friday – Sunday, March 15 – 17, 2024.


Tickets for Opera del Sol's production of this groundbreaking new opera by Derrick Wang are now available on the Dr Phillips Center for the Performing Arts website!



Scalia/Ginsburg is a light-hearted, night at the theatre that everyone needs, an opera inspired both by the opinions of U.S. Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia and by the “operatic precedent” of Händel, Mozart, Rossini, Bellini, Verdi, Offenbach, Bizet, Sullivan, Puccini, Strauss, et al.


Don't miss your chance to see the opera that unites us all.

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.
