The Supreme Play - Scalia/Ginsburg, Opera

Don't know what you're doing in the middle of  July?  Why not attend Scalia/Ginsburg at the Castleton Festival in Virginia, an opera covering the rather turbulent relationship between these two pillars of the American legal establishment.  Can't make it to Virginia?  Watch it online!

Although the July 11 performance (which will include a talk by Justice Ginsburg on law and opera) is sold out, there is a waitlist.  There will be a livestream of the July 11 performance along with L'heure espagnole on July 11 from 6:00 p.m. CST to 8:30 p.m. CST, viewable here.  Additionally, the next live performances will be July 17 & 19.

On review of the merits of the opera, Justice Ginsburg delivered the judgment of "quite funny" and an opinion of its creator Derrick Wang as "very talented."  Justice Scalia took no part in the consideration or decision of this opera.
