Scalia/Ginsburg: An Opera by Derrick Wang

Great Hall | Clinton Presidential Center | Little Rock, AR

We're thrilled to present "Scalia/Ginsburg: an Opera by Derrick Wang" at the Clinton Presidential Center in partnership with Opera in the Rock. 

"Scalia/Ginsburg" features the seemingly unlikely friendship between the late Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia. Although their interpretations of the Constitution could vary widely, the justices shared a deep love of opera. The opera’s theme, “We are different, we are one,” reminds the audience that we all have more in common with each than we don’t.

Performance Dates and Times: 
Thursday, August 26               7:30 p.m.
Friday, August 27                    7:30 p.m. (Opening Night Performance)
Saturday, August 28                2:30 p.m.                                            
                                                7:30 p.m.

Directed by Ella Marchment, “Scalia/Ginsburg” stars local favorite artists Matthew Tatus and Shannon Rookey in the title roles with lyric bass Michael Colman in the role of the Commentator.
