Scalia/Ginsburg - An American Comic Opera in One Act: Excerpts and Panel Discussion

When composer Derrick Wang was a law student, he was inspired to create a musical work that showcases the friendship and long-running constitutional dual between Justices Scalia and Ginsburg. The result is an American comic opera in one act: Scalia/Ginsburg. You are cordially invited to a special showing of excerpts from Scalia/Ginsburg performed by Suzanne Karpov, soprano, and Peter Scott Drackley, tenor, with piano accompaniment by Derrick Wang. The evening will begin with an introduction by the composer, followed by the performance, and will conclude with a panel discussion moderated by Professor Paul Brest.
