Read the original story on KTNV.

A comedy about friendship in a divided world, inspired by the words of U.S. Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia, Scalia/Ginsburg was first heard at the Supreme Court of the United States before its world premiere production at noted conductor Lorin Maazel's Castleton Festival. Revised after the passing of Justice Scalia, Scalia/Ginsburg received a sold-out production in 2017 at The Glimmerglass Festival. In 2019, OperaDelaware's mainstage opening of Scalia/Ginsburg became the highest-grossing performance in the company's 74-year history.

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 in Justice Ginsburg's 2016 book My Own Words.
