An evening of opera and insight with the former Supreme Court Justice

Why See Washington National Opera: Justice at the Opera with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg?

An opera evening with an American icon

An evening at the opera with a difference: Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg takes a fascinating discussion on justice, criminality and human rights as depicted in the opera and wider context, making it an excellent companion evening to Champion and Dead Men Walking. A fan of WNO, the now-retired Supreme Court Justice joins Artistic Director and host Francesca Zambello as they examine the legal issues presented in opera, the arias of which will be sung by Domingo-Cafritz Young Artists for a lively mix of performance and discussion.

Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg is notable for being only the second female Supreme Court Justice appointed after Sandra Day O'Connor, and an outspoken activist for womens' rights. Now a pop culture icon in her own right, she has been immortalized as the Notorious RBG for her fiery speeches of dissent, spawning a roaring trade in T-shirts, dolls and other collectables.
